1861/06/05 S.C. Cavender enlisted for a 12 month period in Company "A" of Wheeler's 6th Tennessee Cavalry. (Confederate). He deserted on or about May 1, 1863.104 1861/06/15 Many Cavenders volunteered for the Civil War in Tennessee. In the "History of the Civil War" Chapter XXVIII, page 315, it is recorded that in the mountainous portions of Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, where comparatively few slaves were kept, large numbers of people were opposed to secession, and for their devotion to the Union, they suffered such persecution as had never been witnessed in this part of the world. It was perhaps most violent in East Tennessee. Among the numerous deliberate and brutal murders committed by men in the Confederate uniform were those of Rev. L. Carter and his son in Bradley County, Tennessee, the Rev. M. Cavender in Van Buren County, Tennessee, the Rev. Blair of Hamilton County, Tennessee, and the Rev. Douglas, all for the simple reason that they were Unionists. Many of the outrages upon the wives and children of Union men were such as any writer would shrink from recording. Those who could get away fled northward, often after their homes had been burned and their movable property carried off, and became subjects of charity in the free States. 104 1861/07/09 W. P. Cavender enlisted as a private in the Civil War in Lumpkin County, Georgia. 355 1861/09/13 The 1st.Tennessee Cavalry Battalion was organized in early 1861 and mustered into Confederate service on September 13, 1861 under a McNairy. It was reorganized in May 1862, consolidated into three companies on June 13, 1862, and was consolidated with four companies of the 7th Calvary Battalion to form the 22nd. which was usually called the 2nd. Barteau Calvary Regiment with Captains William L. Horn (“William Horn”), William W. Calvert (“William Calvert”), George Morton and Pleas Smith and comprised men from Davidson County, Tennessee. Company B organized in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee on May 25, 1861 as the Shelby Dragoons. Company D was called the Marion Dragoons which was organized at Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee on June 15, 1861 with Captains Edwin D. Payne (“Edwin Payne”) and J.H. Duncan. A J.C. Cavender was listed as a private in Company D of the 1st.Tennessee Calvary Battalion under McNairy. Also, a J.C. Cavender was listed as a private in Company B of the 22th Tennessee Calvary Battalion under Barteau. According to the history of the 1st.Tennessee it is recorded: “An old history of the battalion, date uncertain, written by one of its members stated that after the battle of Shiloh, Colonel John H. Morgan (“John Morgan”) desired to make an expedition into Kentucky, and not having men who were familiar with the section of Tennessee through which he would pass, obtained a detail of 25 men, including Captain Hooper Harris from Company A of the battalion to accompany him. The expedition left Burnsville, Mississippi early in May, and at Lebanon, Tennessee on May 5, 1862 were surprised by a strong force of Federal calvary. Captain Harris and 21 men from the battalion were captured in this engagement.” The Charles Cavender a private in Company B of the 1st.Tennessee who died on December 30, 1863 in the POW prison at Rock Island, Illinois may have been the above-named J.C. Cavender whose full name may have been James Charles Cavender or John Charles Cavender. From the above reorganizations, he probably was captured in late May 1862 or early June 1862. It was also recorded that a Sergeant G.C. Cavender served in Company M of the 1st.Tennessee Calvary under a Carter and which was organized with men from Washington County, Tennessee, Sullivan County, Tennessee and Carter County, Tennessee. It is also recorded that a Thomas Cavander (“Thomas Cavender”) was a private in the 1st.Tennessee Calvary Battalion when it was organized from men who were originally from the 1st.Kentucky Calvary Battalion.
