Alabama 4th Cavalry Regiment (Russell's)
The Alabama 4th Cavalry Regiment was formed after Shiloh (April or May 1862) at Murfreesboro by consolidating four companies from the 3rd (Forrest's Old) Tennessee Cavalry Regiment, six companies of the Alabama 4th Cavalry Battalion, and the 15th Tennessee 15th Cavalry Battalion (Russell's Rangers). At Murfreesboro, Tennessee in Dec. 1862, four companies of the original battalion with which Gen. Forrest entered the service, were united with the six companies of the Fourth Alabama battalion, and the regiment organized.
Members were from the counties of Madison, Wilcox, Monroe, Cherokee, Jackson, Marshall, and Lawrence.
