Need help. Currently researching a Georgian ancestor, Samuel Spencer. I know a great deal about his pre and post civil war life but very little about his civil war service. All I have on him is that he attended Georgia Military Inst., enlisted at the age of 16, served in Nelson's Rangers (? independent calvary), fought at Vicksburg, ? served with Forrest and Hood. Would appreciate any information.

Here's a link to a gentleman John Flournoy who joined Nelson's Rangers late in 1864 and it gives you a little history of where Nelson's Rangers fought form 1864 to 1865. It seem they were General S. Lee personal escorts...
