Major or Lieut. Col. Chandler commanded this battalion before Livingston's assignment. I'm flying blind in the absence of my Alabama unit files assembled about twenty years ago.
You will recall that companies "A", "B" and "C" had been independent companies which had operated with the 6th Alabama Cavalry as it picketed the aproaches to Pollard. These were assembled as a battalion, other companies being added at Montevallo.
Company "D" was Capt. Moor's company from Cedar Grove, present-day Leeds AL. The interesting Moor family letters are in the Georgia State Archives in Atlanta. Capt. Moor's body was left at Ten Islands. His father and wife brought a wagon from Cedar Grove to retrieve it for burial at home. At the time she was expecting their first child.
I'm not really traveling; it's more like being in transition.
