Tenth Alabama
Cavalry Regiment

(Pickett's) Cavalry Regiment


This was a regiment organized in the winter of 1863-64, to constitute part of Roddy's command. Richard O. Pickett of Lauderdale was the colonel, and the men were from the northern counties of Alabama. The services of the regiment were confined in a great measure to outpost operations in the Tennessee valley, though it participated in the Pulaski raid, and other encounters and forays.

10th Cavalry Regiment was organized during the winter of 1863-1864 with men recruited in those counties north of the Tennessee River. The regiment was first stationed at Mount Hope, then was assigned to General Roddey's Brigade, District of North Alabama, Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. It principally was restricted to outpost duty in the Tennessee Valley and disbanded during the spring of 1865. Colonel Richard O. Pickett, Lieutenant Colonel J.R. Powell, and Major W. P. Wrenn were in command.
