FIELD OFFICERS

CAPTAINS

All of the field officers were from Bradley County. On March 11, 1865, the 5th Tennessee Mounted Infantry Regiment, Colonel S. B. Boyd commanding, was directed to report by letter to Major General J. B. Steedman, Commanding District of the Etowah, to whose command the regiment was assigned.

On April 30, 1865, it was reported in the District of the Etowah, unattached to any brigade. On June 1, 1865, it was temporarily attached to the 2nd Brigade, 1st Separate Division, Army of the Cumberland, and was directed to render reports to the commanding officer of that brigade. These were the only references to the regiment found in the Official Records. Dyer's Compendium states the regiment did garrison duty at Dalton and Marietta, Georgia; was engaged in a skirmish at McLemore's Cove, Georgia, February 1, 1865; was on an expedition from Dalton to Coosawattie River and Spring Place, Georgia, April 1-4, 1865; and was mustered out July 17, 1865.
