HISTORY OF EIGHTH CAVALRY.
The Eighth Cavalry Regiment was organized at St. Charles, Illinois, in September, 1861, by Colonel J. F. Farnsworth, and was mustered in September 18, 1861.
On October 13, the regiment moved to Washington City, and camped at Meridian Hill on the 17th. On December 17 moved to camp near Alexandria, Virginia. March 10, 1862, the regiment joined the general advance on Manassas, in General Sumner's division. The Eighth Cavalry remained at Warrenton until April 12—at four different times driving the enemy across the Rappahannock. Embarked at Alexandria on April 23, and landed at Shipping Point, May 1. May 4 moved to Williamsburg, and was assigned to the Light Brigade, General Stoneman commanding. The regiment was engaged during the advance of the army up the Peninsula.
On June 26th six companies of the regiment met the advance of the enemy, under Jackson, at Mechanicsville, and held it in check until three o'clock in the afternoon, when their line was driven back to the infantry lines.
The regiment did important duty, in the charge of base which followed this action, at Gains' Hill, Dispatch Station and Malvern Hill, and, covering the extreme rear of the army, continually skirmished with the enemy's cavalry. Remained on picket, on the James river, while the army lay at Harrison's Landing.

The Eighth was on picket until February 17, 1863, on the left flank of the army, across the Peninsula and up the Rappahannock. to Port Conway. when it was moved to the right flank, near Dumphries. Loss, up to this time, twenty-seven killed, seventy-one wounded and twenty missing.

HISTORY OF SIXTEENTH CAVALRY.
The Sixteenth Cavalry was composed principally of Chicago men. Thiele- man's and Schambeck's cavalry companies, raised at the outset of the war, formed the nucleus of the regiment. The former company served as General Sherman's body guard for some time. Captain Thieleman was made a major and authorized to raise a battalion. Thieleman and Schambeck's companies were thenceforth known as Thieleman's Battalion.
In September, 1862, the War Department authorized the extension of the battalion to a regiment, and on the nth of June, 1863, the regimental organization was completed. In October, 1863, the Sixteenth Cavalry was ordered to Knoxville, Tennessee, and a portion of it participated in the memorable defense of that place in November and December. A detachment under Colonel Thieleman constituted the garrison at Cumberland Gap, and one battalion, under Major Beers, was sent up Powell's Valley in the direction of Jonesville, Virginia. On the 3d of January, 1864, this battalion was attacked by three brigades of Longstreet's command, and after maintaining its ground for ten hours against five times its own number and losing heavily in killed and wounded, its ammunition having become exhausted, it was compelled to surrender. The loss of the regiment upon this occasion was three hundred and fifty-six men and fifty-six officers. Long afterward the rebels exchanged less than one-third of these prisoners, sent them back in the most wretched condition from the horrors of the prison pen at Andersonville. The others were victims of the frightful tortures to which they were there subjected and now- lie buried in the National cemetery at that place.
After the conclusion of the east Tennessee campaign, the regiment was. in February, 1864, ordered to report at Camp Nelson, at Mount Sterling. Kentucky, where it was remounted, and in the latter part of April it left that place for Georgia. It then constituted a part of the cavalry corps under General Stoneman.
It arrived at Red Clay, Georgia, May 10, and on the 12th was engaged in the battle of Vornell Station, where it lost one officer, Lieutenant Kerfurth, wounded and captured, and twelve men. It was there on duty almost every day from that time until after the fall of Atlanta—a period of nearly four months—during which it participated in the battles of Rocky Face Ridge, Buzzard's Roost, Reseca, Kingston, Cassville. Carterville, Allatoona, Kenesaw, Lost Mountain, Mine's Ridge, Powder Springs, Chattahoochee and
various engagements in front of Atlanta and Jonesboro. Returning to Decatur, Georgia, it remained there until September 14, and was then ordered to Nicholasville, Kentucky, to again remount. On the 22d of October it left that place for Nashville, and was ordered thence to Pulaski, thence to Fayetteville and back, and then, after a few days, to Waynesboro, near the Tennessee river. It had been there but three days when Hood crossed the river at Florence and below, and the brigade in which the Sixteenth was then serving was ordered to fall back. On this retreat it kept up a running fight with the enemy for three days and nights, until it reached Columbia. While the main army remained here, the Sixteenth was sent up Duck river to defend some fords at which it was supposed the enemy would attempt to cross. The expectation was realized, and in the six hours' engagement which followed the regiment held its position triumphantly against a vastly superior force of the rebels until dusk, when it learned that a large body of the enemy had crossed the Duck river and got completely in its rear. The only support the regiment then had was part of a company from the Eighth Michigan, and one company from the Eighth Iowa. The enemy had two brigades in line of battle across the pike and directly in the rear.
The night was dark and our boys approached quietly until within one hundred yards of the enemy, when the charge was sounded, and the lines of the enemy were broken.
The Sixteenth next participated in the battle of Franklin and in various skirmishes between there and Nashville.
It engaged in the two days' battles at the latter place and in the pursuit of the enemy to the Tennessee river. It then returned to Pulaski and there went into camp, but most of the regiment was kept on scouting duty from that time until March, 1865. It then moved to Springfield, and in May returned to Pulaski, whence most of it was sent to Holton, Courtland and Decatur, Alabama.
On the 18th of June it returned to Pulaski, and on the 2d of July it was ordered to Franklin, where it remained, scouring the country in all directions, until ordered to Nashville for muster out. It arrived in Chicago on the 23d of August, 1865, for final payment and discharge.
During its term of service the Sixteenth marched about five thousand miles and engaged in thirty-one general battles and numerous skirmishes. At its muster out the only members left of the original field and staff officers were Colonel Smith, Captain Ford and Lieutenant Finger. The original force of the regiment was twelve hundred men. It received one hundred recruits, and at its discharge could muster only two hundred and eighty-five men, showing a casualty list of nearly one thousand.
In January, 1865, Captain Hiram S. Hanchett, of this regiment, was captured at Mount Pleasant, Tennessee, and taken to the rebel prison at Cahaba, Alabama. There he organized the sixty men he found in prison, systematized a plan of escape, and this band of braves overpowered the guard, broke out and marched for two days, fighting all the while, hoping to reach the river and capture a steamboat on which they might escape. After that struggle, however, they were overpowered and then taken back. A number of the fugitives were killed; but for Captain Hanchett a worse fate was reserved. He was enclosed in a wooden box eight feet square with one aperture, through which his food was passed.
Here he remained until the rebels heard General Wilson was coming and deemed it was best to shift their quarters.
Poor Hanchett was, by over a month of this confinement, reduced to too feeble a state to move and they blew out his brains when they left.

HISTORY OF SEVENTEENTH CAVALRY.
The Seventeenth Cavalry Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, was organized under special authority from the War Department, issued September 11. 1863, to Hon. John F. Farnsworth. The rendezvous was established at St. Charles, Kane county, Illinois. By the approval of the governor of the state the colonelcy of the regiment was offered to John L. Beveridge, then major in the Eighth Illinois Cavalry, who assumed the work of recruitment and organization and opened the rendezvous November 15, 1863. Eight companies were mustered in January 22, 1864. Four other companies were mustered in and the organization of the regiment completed February 12, 1864.
By the close of April next six hundred and fifty horses had been brought in by the men, under instruction from the cavalry bureau, and sold to the government.
May 3, 1864, the regiment moved, under orders from the general-in- chief, to report to Major General Rosecrans, commanding the Department of Missouri at St. Louis, Missouri.
The regiment was sent to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, where one thousand one hundred sets of horse equipments were received. From there it moved to Alton, Illinois, and relieved the Thirteenth Illinois Cavalry in guarding the military prison at that place. For this purpose five hundred muskets were drawn from the arsenal.
Early in June following the First Battalion was ordered to St. Louis, and the Second Battalion followed immediately. Both being fully mounted, they were ordered at once to the north Missouri district.
The First Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Dennis J. Hynes commanding, proceeded to St. Joseph, Missouri, where the commanding officer reported in person to General Fisk, commanding the District of North Missouri.
The Second Battalion, Major Lucius C. Matlack commanding, was assigned by General C. B. Fisk to the post of Glasgow, Missouri.
From this period for four months the three battalions were separate and remote from each other. Their history will be fitly given in separate narratives, extending over the time intervening and up to the time of reunion with the regimental headquarters.
OF THE FIRST BATTALION.
Lieutenant Colonel Hynes, being detailed as chief of cavalry, and attached to General Fisk's staff, the first squadron (Companies A and B), under Major H. Hillard, was ordered to Weston, Missouri. The second squadron (Companies C and D) was ordered to remain at St. Joseph, Missouri, Captain J. D. Butts in command.
The duties of the battalions were mainly escort and provost guard duty for three months; not always at the same localities, yet always within the District of North Missouri.
In September, 1864, the invasion of Missouri by Price's army of rebels increased the responsibility of their work by the increased restlessness of the rebel sympathizers around them; but no actual conflict with the enemy occurred in that district.
Late in September the second squadron (Companies C and D), commanded by Captain Jones, was moved over the country to Jefferson City, Missouri, and here, rejoining the regiment, took part in the defense of the city, October 6 and 7, 1864.
The first squadron (Companies A and B) remained in north Missouri during the winter and joined the regiment in June, 1865. Lieutenant Colonel Hynes and Major Hillard had been ordered to the regiment in February and March preceding while the headquarters was at Pilot Knob, Missouri.
OF THE SECOND BATTALION.
From July, 1864, for three months Major Matlack, with the battalion (Companies E, F, G and H) occupied the post of Glasgow. This was adjacent to the strongholds of numerous guerrilla bands, whose influence with rebel sympathizers and their inroads upon the loyal inhabitants and interruptions of United States telegraph lines required scouting parties constantly on the road for a distance of from thirty to sixty miles. Threatened attacks upon the post and actual assaults upon the outposts kept the entire detachment busy day and night.
Parties were sent out under orders from General Douglas, commanding Eighth Sub-District, District of North Missouri, to remote points, and frequent fights ensued. In every instance but one—when a score of the Seventeenth men fought five times their number—their success in punishing the enemy was decided, -yet not without the loss of a few killed and wounded. Among these fights may be named one near Allen, on the North Missouri Railroad, in July, 1864; one near the Porsche Hills, and a third near Rocheport. None of these demand a more extended notice.
The reported presence of the rebel Colonel Thornton, with one thousand, five hundred men, induced an order from General Rosecrans, through General Fisk, for a movement from Glasgow, northward and westward, in search of Thornton. Pursuant thereto Major Matlack moved with all his mounted force and a squadron of the Ninth Cavalry, Missouri State Militia, to Chillicothe, on the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. Here, reinforced by five hundred militia, the column was divided into three detachments and thoroughly scoured the whole country from the railroad southward and westward to the river. No enemy was found, but the presence of the troops reassured . the Union men of that country, and held their enemies in check. The distance traveled was three hundred miles.
In September, 1864, the Second Battalion was ordered to move over the country and report to General McNeil, commanding the district of Rolla, at Rolla, Missouri. It rejoined the regiment at Jefferson City, with which its movements are thenceforward identified.
OF THE THIRD BATTALION.
From July, 1864, until late in August of the same year this battalion, with regimental headquarters, remained at Alton, Illinois. Being removed to Benton Barracks, and fully mounted, it was ordered, early in September, to Glasgow, Missouri, but at Jefferson City its destination was changed, and,
joined by the Second Battalion, Colonel John L. Beveridge commanding', reported to General John McNeil at Rolla September 19, 1864, with the two battalions. Here commenced an active and vigorous campaign, in which the movements of the regiment were a unit.
When all communications between Rolla and St. Louis were interrupted by Price's army, and General Ewing's small force had retired from Pilot Knob, after a brave resistance, Colonel Beveridge, with the Seventeenth, by order of General McNeil, moved out at noon, September 28, and, driving' a cavalry force which appeared near Cuba, reached Leesburg the day following —thirty-three miles distant—and saved General Ewing, with Colonel Fletcher (since governor of Missouri) and their seven hundred men, from imminent peril of capture and covered their return to Rolla, Missouri.
Early in October the regiment moved from Rolla—a part of McNeil's brigade—towards Jefferson City, reaching there in time to aid in constructing defenses and in repelling the attack of Price, October 6 and 7, where Companies C and D rejoined the regiment.
The day following General Pleasanton arrived from St. Louis and organized the entire force—four thousand—as a cavalry division, under General Sanborn. Colonel Beveridge was placed in command of the Second Brigade, which included the Seventeenth Illinois Cavalry and the Third, Fifth and Ninth Missouri Cavalry.
Major Matlack commanded the Seventeenth, which took part in the attack made on Price at Boonville, October 11, and which induced an early evacuation of that point by the rebels.
At Independence the Seventeenth dismounted, was deployed on the left, and in support of the Thirteenth Missouri Cavalry, when the rear guard of the enemy was attacked and their artillery captured. This was October 22, 1864. Same day, at midnight, the brigade left Independence in the direction of Hickman's Mills, twelve miles distant, where the enemy was intercepted the next day about noon. While the main column of the brigade, under General McNeil, who had assumed command, attacked near the head of the rebel column, the Seventeenth, Colonel Beveridge commanding, was ordered to form a separate column and strike the enemy on the flank, one mile or more in the rear. By a rapid movement their flank was reached, but at a moment preceding an attack, which must have been a success, peremptory orders were received to return and support the battery in front. Two days after this the division, now under General Pleasanton's immediate orders, captured Major General Marmaduke, Brigadier General Cabel, ten rebel cannon and more than a thousand prisoners, with their arms, at Mine Creek, Kansas, having moved seventy miles within twenty-four hours.
The Seventeenth, with McNeil's brigade, was hurried forward in pursuit of the retreating foe. Three times the pursuers formed in line of battle, but only in the last case did the enemy maintain his ground. Then the rebels had chosen their ground on an open prairie, and were quietly waiting the approach of the Union forces—a brigade, now thinned down to fifteen hundred men, moving up to attack fifteen thousand. Every man of this little band could see and was seen by every man of the rebel army. The Seventeenth was made the guide for the whole line, of which it was the left. After a short, sharp engagement and an attempt by the rebels to overwhelm its right, which was prevented by the arrival of two guns, which checked the rebels, an order came from General Pleasanton to charge along the whole line. After some delay the command "forward" was given, and away went the Seventeenth boys. With only three hundred men they pushed up in the face of the enemy, who moved off at their approach, while the center and right were fully half a mile in the rear. This was October 25, 1864, and occurred in the vicinity of Fort Scott. The lack of forage and the rapid marching caused the loss of more than half their horses, and hundreds of miles were traversed by some of the Seventeenth on foot.
The escape of the rebels over the Arkansas line was followed by the march of the brigade to Springfield, Missouri. Here orders from headquarters directed it to proceed southwest to Cassville, Missouri, thence back to Rolla, Missouri, which was reached by November 15, 1864. During the forty-three days intervening the regiment had marched over one thousand miles and suffered the loss of six hundred horses.
In January, 1865, the Seventeenth was ordered to Pilot Knob, Missouri. After being remounted it was ordered to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in April.
Colonel Beveridge was now breveted brigadier general, and in command of Sub-District No. 2, of St. Louis District, headquarters at Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Lieutenant Colonel Hynes commanded the regiment.
A threatened attack on the Union lines was rumored abroad. An expedition was sent out, comprising the Seventeenth and some Missouri artillery, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Hynes, late in April, but no enemy was found.
The week following the Seventeenth accompanied commissioners from department headquarters with a flag of truce, who reached General Jeff Thompson and arranged terms and places for the capitulation of his forces.
From Cape Girardeau the regiment was ordered to Kansas, and occupied detached posts along the plains; whence they returned to be mustered out in November and December, 1865, at Leavenworth, Kansas.
Their last important work was that of a detachment, accompanying the commissioners, who went to Fort Smith to treat with the Indians at the great council held in September, 1865.
The service of the regiment has been wholly within the Department of the Missouri, commanded, respectively, by Generals Rosecrans, Dodge and Pope.
While the regiment was stationed at Pilot Knob Major Matlack was ordered to St. Louis and assigned to duty as provost marshal.
From Cape Girardeau Colonel Beveridge was ordered to Warrensburg, thence to Kansas City, and thence to Rolla, Missouri. He closed out all the military in Missouri south of the Missouri river outside of St. Louis county, mustering out the Missouri troops, supervising the removal of military stores, and subjecting the military to the civil authorities when the regiment was mustered out. Colonel Beveridge. by order of the secretary of war, was detained in the service and presided over a military commission in St. Louis for the trial of rebel offenders against property and persons of the United States. He was finally mustered out of the service February 6, 1866, having served over four years.
The Seventeenth was the last cavalry regiment organized in this state. Its services were confined chiefly to the Department of the Missouri.
While the regiment did not experience any severe engagements, it performed hard and valuable services in frequent skirmishes with the enemy, in routing guerrilla parties and in long and weary marches.
As the youngest of the cavalry regiments it is entitled to the respect of the older regiments and the gratitude of the state and nation.
