  1. Missing Cavalry?

    Does anyone know if Thompson's Kentucky Cavalry Company (Bowen's Brigade), present at the Battle of Shiloh? In addition, were the Prattville Dragoons and Mathews Rangers (Gibson's brigade) present? If so, were they actually a part of the Jenkins Alabama Battalion (cavalry under Ruggles division of the 2nd Corps)? Thanks in advance for any help.
  2. We're all familiar with Federal units that were "off the grid" -- not directly involved with the Battle of Shiloh. Some were "on their way" (such as George Thomas' 1st Division, Army of the Ohio); others were guarding the Post of Savannah (53rd Illinois and 53rd Indiana... and for a while, the 14th Wisconsin Infantry); and others were further afield (such as the 31st Illinois, acting as garrison for Federal-controlled Fort Donelson.) But, what about the Cavalry organization most often referred to as "Curtis Horse" ? Although not at Pittsburg Landing, this unit was assigned directly to Major General Grant, and performed a useful role during the Siege of Fort Donelson; and was involved in significant operations during build up of force in vicinity of Crump's and Pittsburg Landing. Name the State affiliation and number of this Cavalry organization. Ozzy Bonus: 1) What was the significant mission accomplished prior to surrender of Fort Donelson? 2) Name a date and location (prior to Shiloh) that any of the three significant operations involving Curtis Horse occurred? (Someone clever can list all three.)
