I want to dedicated this page to the memory of my mother, Sue Frasier Martin,  she is the reason for this site.  She wanted to compile all the information she could on the 1st Tn and Al Vidette Cavalry, she put a lot of time in the research.  She lost her battle with breast cancer on May 16, 2013 after 7 years.
