However, the list is taken from those that surrendered at the end of the war; no other muster rolls are known to exist. This unit was commonly called Wood's Cavalry and was originally the 14th Missouri Cavalry Battalion. Commanded by Col. Robert C. Wood, it served primarily as an "unattached" or independent unit, although it was assigned to Marmaduke's Cavalry Division. It saw action in the following battles: Pine Bluff, Ark. (Oct. 25, 1863), Jenkins' Ferry (April 30, 1864) and in the numerous engagements of Price's 1864 Missouri raid. The Regiment surrendered at Shreveport, LA and was paroled in June 1865. At the time of its surrender it was part of the 1st Missouri Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, Trans-Mississippi Department.
