In 1914-1915, Dr. Gus Dyer, State Archivist sent out questionnaires to all living Confederate soldiers and Federal veterans as well. These questionnaires ask many questions about their personal life and military life. Of these, nationally, 1466 Confederate and 115 Federal questionnaires were returned. Of these only twenty were returned from the 5th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment. This volume represents those twenty returns.

Example from this volume:

WILLIAM CLENTON GODSEY replies: “Company ‘I’ was with Fifth Tennessee Cavalry as rear guard from Perryville through Cumberland Gap into Tennessee. Then we went to Murfreesboro, was engaged in that fearful contest. Then we were ordered back into East Tennessee, had many skirmishes with bushwhackers all over East Tennessee and Kentucky mountains. Made four raids into Kentucky, fought 4 battles at Crab Orchard, Big Hill, Stanton, Richmond and Paris and other Kentucky towns.... etc. etc.
