Freeman's Cavalry Regiment was organized in January, 1864, with about 800 officers and men. It served in the Trans-Mississippi Department and was very active confronting the Federals in Arkansas. A Federal expedition, February 12-20, 1864, was organized to pursue this command, which resulted in 8 killed, 1 wounded, and 31 missing. Later the unit was assigned to T. R. Freeman's Brigade and participated in Price's Missouri operations. With Price it lost 13 killed, 20 wounded, and 148 missing and in December totaled about 250 men. It continued the fight in Missouri during 1865 and disbanded in the spring. The field officers were Colonel Thomas R. Freeman, Lieutenant Colonel Joseph B. Love, and Major M. V. Shaver.
