64th Regiment, Virginia Mounted Infantry

64th Regiment Mounted Infantry was organized in December, 1862, by consolidating the 21st and 29th Battalions Virginia Infantry. Prior to September 1, 1863, it was known as the 64th Infantry, and after that date it was also called the 64th Cavalry. On September 9, a large part of this unit was captured at Cumberland Gap. Later it served in Williams', Giltner's, and W.E. Jones' Brigade and confronted the Federals in various conflicts in East Tennessee, western Virginia, and North Carolina. During April, 1864, it totalled 268 effectives, but in April, 1865, less than 50 disbanded. The field officers were Colonels Auburn L. Pridemore and Campbell Slemp, Lieutenant Colonel James B. Richmond, and Major Harvey Gray.
