Holloway's Cavalry was utilized as an escort/bodyguard company
for several Confederate Generals.
The unit was also known as the
Crocheran Light Dragoons, Captain Smith's Escort Company
Holloway's Light Dragoons.
From the "Confederate Veteran" magazine, Volume XXXII, Number 11, November, 1929: "WANTS TO HEAR FROM OLD COMRADES - J.T. Webster writes from Fort Worth, Tex., Box 74, Polytechnic: "I enlisted at Pleasant Hill, Ala., early in the fall of 1861, in R.W. Smith's company of cavalry, made up of volunteers from Wetumpka to Mobile, along the Alabama River. After the battle of Shiloh, E.M. Holloway became our captain and continued in command to the close of the war. We were taken by General Braxton Bragg for his escort, or couriers, for battle of Shiloh, and continued as such during the time he commanded the Tennessee Army, then with Gen. Joseph E. Johnston in his campaign from Dalton to Atlanta; then with Gen. John B. Hood in the battles around Atlanta and his ill-fated campaign into Tennessee; then again with General Joseph E. Johnston, who we followed into North Carolina and surrendered with him at Greensboro, April 26, 1865. I was in all campaigns and battles of the Tennessee Army from Shiloh to the surrender. I should be glad to hear from anyone who served with me in this command"
