    2nd Regiment, Alabama Cavalry
    2nd Cavalry Regiment was organized during May, 1862, at Montgomery, Alabama. Its companies were from the counties of Calhoun, Shelby, Greene, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Butler, Coosa, Monroe, and Dallas. The regiment operated for a time in Florida, then skirmished in Mississippi under General Ruggles before being assigned to Ferguson's Brigade. Under this command it was active in the Atlanta Campaign, the defense of Savannah, and the campaign of the Carolinas. Later the 2nd Cavalry formed part of President Davis' escort when he moved southward during the last days of the war. It surrendered at Forsyth, Georgia, in May, 1865, with about 450 officers and men. Its commanders were Colonels John N. Carpenter, R.G. Earle, and F.W. Hunter; Lieutenant Colonels James Cunningham, Josiah J. Pegues, and John P. West; and Majors Richard W. Carter and Leroy Napier.
