Visit the home of the 12th TN Cavalry, CSA! Excellent website!

The 12th Tennessee (Green's) Cavalry was organized February 14, 1863, in occupied West Tennessee. It was also known as the 1st Regiment Tennessee Partisan Rangers and as the 12th Regiment Tennessee partisan Rangers. The company was transferred illegally in August, 1863 to serve as Co. A, 16th (Logwood's) Tennessee Cavalry  until December 1863, when it was ordered back to the 12th Regiment by command of General FORREST. It subsequently became Co. I, 3rd Tennessee (Forrest's) Cavalry .

William D. MUNROE enrolled for duty on  October 18, 1862, when the unit was still called the "Partisan Rangers."  He was captured at Hickory Wythe (in Fayette Co., TN) on June 5, 1863, and was sent as a prisoner of war to the Federal prison at Alton, Illinois.
