Regimental History
George's Independent Cavalry. Capt., John S. George; First Lieut., Joseph N. Bimpson ; Second Lieut., Charles E. Hambliton. This independent company of cavalry was organized at Ironton, in the spring of 1861. On July 2 it proceeded to Gallipolis and was mustered into the service of the state for a period of three months. It became a part of Gen. J. D. Cox's brigade and entering western Virginia it marched to Red House on the Kanawha river, taking part in the reconnoissance for the purpose of discovering the Confederate position. On July 17 it became part of an attacking column to drive the enemy from his position at Scarey creek. It participated in all the marches and skirmishes during that campaign, forming a most important part of the state forces. The loss to the company was 1 man killed in battle, and it was mustered out at Ironton on Sept. 19.
