Regimental History
Oneida Cavalry. — This independent company was raised and organized at Oneida, Madison county, and was there mustered into the U. S. service for three years, Sept. 4, 1861, under the command of Capt. David P. Mann. It left the state the same month and served at the headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, performing escort and guard duty, furnishing couriers, etc. On the expiration of its term of service the original members, except veterans, were mustered out and the organization composed of veterans and recruits remained in service until June 13, 1865, when it was mustered out near Washington, under command of Capt. James E. Jenkins. During its long period of service it was present at all the important battles fought by the Army of the Potomac, from the siege of Yorktown in 1862 to the surrender of Lee at Appomattox. Eleven enlisted men died of disease and other causes during its term of service.
