In researching the Confederate Civil War Units at the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System they have two units identified as

1st Cherokee Mounted Rifles - 1217 names
1st Cherokee Mounted Volunteers - 1478 names
They have identified the first unit as Stand Watie's, but this is wrong. The 1st Cherokee Mounted Rifles was commanded by Col. John Drew. It disbanded in the fall of 1862. Many of the men joined Watie's 1st Cherokee Mounted Volunteers, but there are separate rosters for each unit.
