Notes


From OSCEOLA'S HISTORY Civil War ranchers both officers and cattlemen By Jim Robison | Sentinel Staff Writer Posted February 3, 2002


"Former Orlando Sentinel reporter Rick Tonyan's Cracker Western novel Guns of the Palmetto Plains (Pineapple Press, 1994) tells an authentic story using a fictional character, Tree Hooker, a Confederate soldier assigned to the cow cavalry.


Theodore Lesley, in a 1940 presentation for the Florida Historical Society, described his father and grandfather's real-life cattle drive from Fort Meade, east of Tampa, to Savannah.


Officially named the lst Battalion Florida Special Cavalry, the 800 cattlemen-soldiers more often were called the Cow Cavalry. Their commander was Maj. Charles J. Munnerlyn, of Decatur County, Ga., who had lost his seat in the Confederate Congress after voting in favor of the highly unpopular Conscript Law, America's first draft.


Despite losing his re-election campaign, Munnerlyn had the political connections to advance from private to major.


He set up his headquarters in Brooksville and stationed his troops "where they might meet any Union invading party and at the same time bring confidence to the surrounding countryside," Russell writes in CRACKER, The Story of Florida's Confederate Cow Cavalry.


Promoted to lieutenant colonel for his efforts, Munnerlyn surrendered the cow cavalry to the Union on June 5, 1865. Russell notes that Robert E. Lee had surrendered at Appomattox nearly two months earlier.


But the cow cavalry had one more mission. In June 1865, in what Russell describes as "a final act of Confederate patriotism," Leroy and John Lesley and the McKay family aided the escape of Confederate Secretary of State Judah P. Benjamin, who slipped past Union forces to Cuba and on to England.


"In general, the Cow Cavalry was successful in its attempt to feed the South, and although it was active for only about a year, it drove a number of beef north (the total number is not known) and succeeded in keeping at least central and south Florida free of Yankee occupation," Russell writes.


The cow cavalry and Florida cattle heritage is covered in Joe A. Akerman Jr.'s Florida Cowman, A History of Florida Cattle Raising (Florida Cattlemen's Association, 1976.)


Find more about the Florida cow cavalry at Kyle S. VanLandingham and David Bamford's Web site at http://www.geocities.com/yes_album/Special_Cavalry.html."
