Winder enlisted on August 17, 1861 as a 1st Sergeant in Company A of Cobb's Legion of Georgia Cavalry. He was promoted to Ordnance Sergeant by the end of 1861 and elected 2nd Lieutenant on June 4, 1862. Shows up in records next in the 3rd Georgia Cavalry as 1st Lieutenant and Adjutant in July of 1862. He is captured at New Haven and sent to Johnson's Island. In prisoner records he is listed as 1st Lieutenant and Adjutant of the 3rd Ga. Cavalry. Released on June 7.

Cobb's Georgia Legion was organized by Howell Cobb during the spring of 1861 and soon moved to Virginia. The legion was composed of cavalry, infantry, and artillery, but did not serve as one command.

The 3rd Georgia Cavalry was organized by Colonel M. J. Crawford and mustered into Confederate service at Athens, Georgia, during the early summer of 1862. It fought in Kentucky with General Wheeler, but at New Haven most of the unit was captured. A detachment saw action at Murfreesboro and after those captured were exchanged, the command was assigned to J.J. Morrison's, C.C. Crews', and Iverson's Brigade. It participated in the campaigns of Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Atlanta, was involved in Northern Alabama and Georgia, and in 1865 participated in various conflicts in the Carolinas. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered with the Army of Tennessee.

From the collection of the late William Turner.  [jet] [ph:L]
