In the final reorganization of the Army April 9th, the remnants of the brigade were consolidated in one regiment, the First Florida, under command of Lieut.-Col. Elisha Mashburn, in Gen. James A. Smith's brigade, Brown's (late Cleburne's) division, Hardee's corps, and thus it was surrendered with the army at Greensboro, April 26th, and disbanded at Augusta, Ga., May 14, 1865. Four companies of independent cavalry commanded by Captains Partridge, Smith, Leigh, and Vaughan, rendered effective service in Alabama. Captain Henderson's independent company of infantry served at Island No.10, and all were captured but the captain and five men. Captain Johnson's independent company of infantry served at Fort Pillow.
