Lynchburg, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Second Virginia Cavalry, C.S.A.
Here, on the 10th of May, 1861, the Second Virginia Cavalry, C.S.A., was organized.
Here, on the 10th of April, 1865, the same command, after years of valiant service with the Army of Northern Virginia, and after cutting its way through the enemy's lines at Appomattox; was regularly disbanded.
Desirous of commemorating these memorable events, I have directed this tablet to be placed here.
Claude A. Swanson
