The Ninth cavalry regiment was organized in the fall of 1863, and mustered in at Davenport, November 30, and was represented by nearly every county in the State. It was moved to Benton Barracks, where it remained until April 14, when it started for Little Rock. Its field of service was in Arkansas, and its most active service was when Steele was in a stage of siege at Little Rock. It was engaged in frequent short, sharp skirmishes. It took no part in the great battles of the war, still it performed two years' laborious and gallant service. It marched over two thousand miles, moved by steamboat and rail seventeen hundred miles, and in scouting, over eight thousand miles. It lost one hundred and sixty-four men by sickness, and fifteen by wounds. It was mustered out at Little Rock in detachments in February and March, 1866.
