Regimental History
Thirteenth Cavalry

Thirteenth Cavalry. -- Col., Tames W. Weatherford, Lieut.-
Col., John A. Morrison; Majs., Harrison M. Hurt, Ferdinand D.
Rigney, George W. Sweeney.

The condition of affairs in eastern and southern Kentucky led
to the formation of a regiment at Columbia in the summer of
1863, and it became the 13th Ky. Cavalry. The men were
familiar with the country and the regiment was employed mainly
in that section.

It went at once into active duty, even while in process of
formation and before it was mustered into service, which was
Dec. 23, 1863. On Dec. 6 three scouting parties of 100 men
each were sent out, one to cross Cumberland River at
Creelsboro, one at Celina, and one at Burkesville.

Fifteen of the raiding enemies called guerrillas were killed,
23 captured, and their horses taken. On March 23, 1864, the
regiment still being on duty in the same station, Gen. Hobson
reported that some of its men under Maj. Rigney had fought
with Col. Hamilton on the Cumberland River and captured him
and 12 of his gang.

On May 14 Col. Weatherford reported from Burkesville that he
had encountered the enemy at the Wolf River, lost 2 men killed
and others wounded, and captured 8 prisoners, including a
captain. On Sept. 16 the regiment was ordered to concentrate
at Mt. Sterling with the other troops under Gen. Hobson, Cols.
Brown, Hanson and others, for the expedition to Saltville, Va.

It participated in this campaign and was engaged in all its
severe fighting and hard marching. In the battle at Saltville
the regiment lost 4 men killed and 13 wounded. Returning from
this expedition, the regiment was at Mt. Sterling, Lexington
and Crab Orchard.

It remained at Camp Nelson on duty until Jan. 10, 1865, when
it was mustered out on account of expiration of term of

I can't find him anywhere after the civil war. Maybe his mother applied to receive the pension for him. Because I really cannot find him anywhere. Good luck
