Ga. State Guard Cav. Units - 12th Batt. & Regiment

We are continuing to look for our ancestor, A.J. or Andrew J Cooper. We have narrowed down his background and believe he is one of two Civil War soldiers.

Does anyone have information on:

12th Battalion, Georgia Cavalry (State Guards)OR

12th Regiment, Georgia Cavalry (Robinson's) (State Guards) -- where were these units formed, why did they disband in 1864, etc.

Thank you for any information you have.

G.M. Patton
