iniscenses of John Randolph of Roanoke, a work which in the testimony presented of those familiar with that erratic genius, seems to give the key to his eccentricity.—Ed.] The Charlotte Cavalry was organized in Charlotte county, Virginia, U. S. A., in 1861. On the 27th May, 1861, it was mustered into the service of the Southern Confederacy at Ashland, Va. It served in the War 1861-5, first in Maj.
