                                            HISTORY OF MILITARY UNITS
                                               IN COLUMBIA COUNTY

                             Since 1835, when men of the 1st. U. S. Dragoon Regiment, U. S.
                        Infantry were operating in this area, many thousands of local men-

                       have worn uniforms in defense of their homes, families, State and

                             It was felt that some attempt should be made to gather, organize,
                       and summarize the available facts on these men and their units. We
                       wish to point out that, since our main goal is to compile the facts,

                       various sources without modification on our part. We hope no one

                       will feel that we have plagiarized their words.
