Served With The Pelham Cadets At Mobile, Alabama - 1864
*By August 24, 1863, nineteen companies had organized for local defense service at Mobile, Alabama. Two of these, the “Pelham Cadets” and the “Maury Rifles”, were composed of teenagers exempt from regular service because of their age and entered active service on November 22, 1863. These two companies joined the 1st Mobile Regiment as Companies B and K. Confederate Congress passed a law calling on seventeen-year olds to enroll as Junior Reserves. The “Pelham Cadets” and “Maury Rifles” were detached to form the 1st Alabama Cadet Battalion on April 4, 1864. Members of this battalion usually served as provost guards, until the city was evacuated by Confederate forces on April 11, 1865. Survivors were paroled at Gainesville, Ala., May 10, 1865.[1].
