The 1st Tennessee Cavalry served under Gen. John C. Vaughn during the period between March, 1864 till they deserted. After Lee surrendered, they participated in part, with the escort of President Jefferson Davis during his escape from Richmond. After spending the night at Statesville, North Carolina, did the 1st Tennessee divert towards Morganton on April 15, 1865? This would coincide with the date April 17, 1865 that my Great, Great Grandfather "Deserted". Or, did they continue to Dallas and surrender at that point.
