company was organized in Crawford county in July, 1863, and accepted for special service
for one year. The horses furnished by the men were received into the service and the
company was mustered in Aug. 13. It was engaged during the fall and winter in assisting
the provost-marshal of the district in arresting deserters, in enforcing the draft, and in
guarding the river border against invasions from the enemy's cavalry and guerrillas.
