The 11th Cavalry Regiment was organized near Athens, Georgia, on November 14, 1864. The regiment was created by consolidating the newly formed 30th Georgia Cavalry Battalion and four independent cavalry companies raised under the authority of the War Department where the conscript act could not be enforced. The majority of the men were from the Athens and Macon areas of Georgia. The unit was assigned to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, and served in M. W. Hannon’s and R. H. Anderson’s Brigade. It fought at Savannah, but many of the men were captured. In February, 1865, only 90 effectives were present and in April most of these were captured at Macon. Colonel Andrew Young, Lieutenant Colonel H. W. Barclay, [both from Union County] and Major Madison Bell were it’s commanders.
