    Jeff Davis Legion Cavalry - Company D - "Sumpter Mounted Guards"

    The Jefferson Davis Legion Cavalry

    The Jeff Davis Legion D Company is a full member of Longstreet's I Corps
    together with the 5th Texas, 15th Georgia, 4th Texas, 6th Alabama, Holcombe's Legion, 23rd Virginia Skirmishers, Palmetto Sharpshooters, 1st Tennessee Skirmishers, Rowan's Artillery, Richmond Howitzers, and Coke's Artillery.

    Jeff. Davis Cavalry Legion was organized in January, 1862, using the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry Battalion as its nucleus. At that time the unit contained two Alabama, one Georgia, and three Mississippi companies. On July 11, 1864, the 4th Alabama Cavalry and Company D of Mullen's Georgia Cavalry were assigned to the legion. However, by the end of July the 4th Alabama Battalion was transferred to the Phillips Georgia Cavalry Legion. The unit served under Generals Hampton, Butler, and P.M.B. Young. The unit participated in the campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from Williamsburg to Cold Harbor, then was active north and south of the James River. In April, 1862, it contained 171 effectives. It lost 4 wounded at Brandy Station, and had 4 killed and 10 wounded of the 246 at Gettysburg. En route from Pennsylvania, it had 2 killed and 12 wounded, and 3 were wounded during the Bristoe Campaign. In 1865 the unit was assigned to General Logan's Brigade and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. Its field officers were Colonel William T. Martin, Lieutenant Colonels William G. Conner and J. Fred. Waring, and Major Ivey F. Lewis and W.M. Stone.

    ^^^Hahahaha great comment! Hmmmm…..there is a 4th PA Cav out there right? Juuust kidding! No need to flip units when you animals push them into my lap, all units that are part of II Corps have **REQUESTED** to be part, not the other way around......just think for a minute, why do all these units that certain groups try to court to their faction willingly come to mine without provocation?.....yall make things too easy for me. Try being stand up guys in the community and cut the drama and politics and you would be amazed what you could accomplish.
