Ogden's Cavalry, a.k.a. 9th Louisiana Cavalry Regiment, was a Confederate unit in the American Civil War. The unit was commanded by Colonel Frederick Nash Ogden. Although the unit was called a cavalry regiment, it was more properly classified as a mounted infantry unit.
The regiment was organized in January 1865 in Mississippi, under the command of Colonel Ogden. Colonel Ogden was a veteran of the siege of Vicksburg. During that battle, the then Major Ogden was with the Louisiana 8th Battalion Heavy Artillery from March 29-July 3, 1863.
When this new cavalry unit was formed, Colonel Ogden received under his command three or four companies from Gober's Regiment Mounted Infantry, three companies formerly with the 14th Confederate Cavalry Regiment, one company from his own temporary battalion, and two recently organized companies. These two new companies, G and H, and possibly one or more of the others, because of their familiarity with the countryside, operated along the lower Amite River and near the Mississippi River south of Baton Rouge, Louisiana until about April 1865. The other companies participated in the marches and engagements of Colonel John Scott's cavalry brigade in northern and central Mississippi. In April 1865, the companies all united near Meridian, Mississippi.
The unit surrendered on May 4, 1865, at Citronelle, Alabama. Most of its troops were paroled on May 12, 1865, at Gainesville, Alabama.
