Mississippi: 4th Cavalry Regiment
The 4th Cavalry, Maj. Thomas R. Stockdale commanding, regiment was listed in Wirt Adams' Brigade, W. H. Jackson's Division, organization of January 20, 1864, under Maj.-Gen. S. D. Lee. General Lee wrote, February 6, that "Wilbourn's Regiment is at Brandon."
Stockdale's Battalion was with the brigade in the gallant stand made against McPherson's column of Sherman's army near Champion's Hill, on February 4, 1864, Sherman being on the march to Meridian. When Adams was compelled to fall back toward Baker's Creek, Stockdale made a brilliant charge upon the Federal flanking column that compelled this movement. Of Wood's Regiment and Stockdale's Battalion, in this action, Adams wrote that "nothing could surpass the unflinching steadiness and courage of these commands," which elicited the commendation of Maj.-Gen. S. D. Lee, who was with the brigade.
