James R. Webb, Private, Company E, 7th Tennessee Cavalry

My great-grandfather, James R. Webb, Pvt, Co E,  7th TN Cav, and his brother, McDaniel Webb, Pvt, Co E, 7th TN Cav, Ruckers Brigade, Chalmers Division.

According to Chalmers, Rucker’s Brigade was the extreme left of the Confederate line.

Any further information on the 7th TN Cav’s location/participation in the
battle would be appreciated.

Both brothers lived in Hardeman County, TN. Both survived the war and afterwards, James was the constable in Bolivar, TN in Hardeman County.

    McDaniel Webb was my great great great grandfather. My dad lit the fires of history and all the causes and consequences of actions from the time we were little bitty kids. I loved hearing Daddy’s stories as long as I can remember and he has recently motivated me to join UDC under great great great granddaddy. A google search brought up your information and I thank you for these posts. Kimberly Burlington, Whitney, Texas
