HISTORY The First Georgia Cavalry Regiment was organized in the fall of 1861 at Rome, Georgia. More than a thousand officers and men were mustered into service with this regiment. It was ordered first to Chattanooga, TENN. and from there to Knoxville, Kentucky. The regiment served with the Department of East Tennessee untill the end of 1862 and then joined the Army of Tennessee, where it served untill late 1863. It then returned to the Department of East Tennessee and subsequently rejoined the Army of Tennessee. In early 1865, the First Georgia Cavalry served in the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida before returning to the Army of Tennessee a final time. The First Georgia Cavalry, also known as Morrison's Cavalry, was commanded first by Colonel James J. Morrison. It also served in the Corps' of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, and General Joseph Wheeler. Its battle credits include: Murfreesboro; Nashville; Big Hill; Pegrams Kentucky Raid; Expedition to Monticello; Chickamauga; Siege of Chattanooga; Philadelphia; Siege of Knoxville; The Atlanta Campaign; Sunshine Church; The Savannah Campaign, and the Carolinas Campaign. During its career, the First Georgia Cavalry served in over one hundred and seventy-five engagements. It has been reported that less then fifty officers and men remained with this unit when it was finally surrendered by General Johnston in April, 1865 near Charlotte, North Carolina.
