By John C. Rigdon

The nucleus of the Alabama eleventh Cavalry Regiment used to be a battalion that served for your time lower than Gen. Forrest, and was once commanded by means of Col. Jeffrey Forrest. This battalion was once variously often called Forrest's Cavalry Regiment, the 4th Alabama Cavalry Regiment and Julian's Cavalry Battalion.

Soon after Col. Jeffrey Forrest’s loss of life, the command used to be elevated to a regiment, and re-organized through moving four Tennessee businesses to the 18th Tennessee Cavalry and by means of sending five Alabama businesses to Warren's and Moreland's cavalry battalions. The Alabama eleventh Cavalry Regiment was once often referred to as the tenth Alabama (Burtwell's) Cavalry Regiment.

Four of the corporations have been from Franklin county, below Captains C. Hyatt, John Steele, Thomas Bonner, and Parker Rand; from Lauderdale, Captains John Barr and Y. A. grey; one from Morgan, Captain Z. F. Freeman; one from Limestone, Captain S. McDonald; and from the kingdom of Mississippi, Captains Van Flake and J. A. Akers.

The eleventh Cavalry used to be with Forrest within the assault on Athens and Sulphur Trestle, and within the struggle at Pulaski, wasting very significantly in casualties at the excursion. The regiment rendered powerful carrier to Gen. Hood. It used to be a part of Roddy's strength at Montevallo, and was once in entrance of Wilson's column to Selma; on the attack at the works there, the 11th used to be within the trenches, and approximately all its males retired therefrom, because the a part of the road held by means of them was once now not assailed.
