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.

I learned he joined the cavalry because he owned a horse..
