Overview
The Alabama 8th (Hatch's) Cavalry Regiment was organized at Newbern, Alabama, in April, 1864, by adding one company to the nine of Hatch's Battalion that had entered Confederate service the previous winter. The men were form Sumter, Dallas, Tuscaloosa, Greene, Marengo, Choctaw, and Fayette counties. It joined General Pillow at Blue Mountain, then was assigned to C. G. Armistead's Brigade, Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. The 8th moved into north Georgia and was engaged in the desperate encounter at Lafayette, with a loss of 30 killed and wounded and about 75 prisoners. Shortly after, the Eighth fought at Rome, losing about 20 men killed and wounded. It was ordered to west Florida soon after, and was in front of Steele as he moved on Pollard. In December, on receiving news of a Federal expedition from Pensacola to Pollard, Ala., Colonel Armistead moved his brigade to Bluff Springs, a march of 150 miles in fifty-four hours, and pursued the expedition on its return, December 16-17, General McKean, commanding at Pensacola, reported that "considerable severe fighting took place at all the streams from the Little Escambia to Pine Barren Creek." Colonel Robinson, commanding the expedition, was severely wounded, and in his troops 17 killed and 64 wounded. The 8th surrendered at Gainesville, Florida in late May, 1865.
