The Virginia Regimental Histories Series covers the 1st VA Cav. I've never researched either of the two MD units so I have no reference material for them. Book contains approximately 50 photos of soldiers and a brief line or two about men on the unit's roster.

I am interested in uniforms and I have 30 color illustrations in books, magazines, and uniform prints for the 1st Virginia Cavalry. I have no illustrations for the 1st & 2nd Cavalry of Maryland.

back in the 1980s and 90s Harold Howard published regimentals for every confederate unit from Virginia. This includes the first Virginia cavalry

When you get some free time I suggest you visit your local public library and get a copy of Joseph Glatthaar's General Lee's Army. Once in hand, pay special attention to the index and source notes for references to 1st Virginia Cavalry.

I tripped across this most valuable source at my local library and it has been great for my project of researching a North Carolina regiment. It's likely it will lead you to Virginia's state archives and/or the University of Virginia library where you will be able to access original source documents of various kinds.

Pvt. Thomas T. Lemen, Co. F, 1st​ Virginia Cavalry, CSA
2nd​ Sgt. William T. Lemen, Co. F, 1st​ Virginia Cavalry, CSA
2nd​ Lt. Wynkoop N. Lemen, Co. F, 1st​ Virginia Cavalry, CSA

Pvt. Peter Light Lemen, 1st​ Maryland Cavalry (US)
