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.
