Red's Company

Contributed by Dan Edwards

See Copyright Information below

Red's Company was organized under the act of Congress which authorized Partisan Rangers in early 1862. This company probably represents the reorganization of the orginal independent Cavalry company (Rebel Troop) which was captained by R. L. Adams. These units met raiding parties, defending the country, and attending to their crops in times of quiet. They were armed, provisioned, and paid by the Confederate government, but not enlisted in the Confederate Provisional Army. This company was under Gen. John Adams' command at Yazoo City in June of 1863. Red's company particpated in the defense of Vicksburg in 1863 and afterwards. On 20 September 1863 the company enlisted in the Confederate Army. In February 1864 it served under Forrest in the battles of Sakatouchee Creek and Okolona. Initially the company was in the 12th Regiment under Colonel Pillow, but shortly there after became part of the 16th under Colonel Charles G. Armistead. Saw service in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. Surrendered at Meridan in 1865.
