FIRST GEORGIA REGIMENT (CAVALRY
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.
