The state of Illinois raised a number of short-lived Independent Cavalry Companies which served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Most of these units were quickly amalgamated with larger formations.

Units[edit | edit source]

  • Sherer's Independent Cavalry Company was organized at Aurora, Illinois as Company B, 36th Illinois Infantry, but detached from the regiment and served primarily as headquarters guard. It was assigned to the 15th Illinois Cavalry on December 25, 1862 as Company K and mustered out with that regiment.
