Biographical Information

On October 15, 1864, Julius Norton was discharged from Co. H. of the 15th Illinois Cavalry and subsequently transferred to Co. D of the 4th Arkansas Cavalry, U.S. With the transfer came Norton's promotion from private to the rank of captain in his new regiment. Norton was promoted to the position following the death of Captain Hugh Quin. The 4th Arkansas Cavalry, U.S. was organized in Little Rock, Arkansas, in December 1863. The regiment as a whole was not involved in any large-scale campaigns. Many of the individual companies were detached at various times and employed in garrison duty or sent on reconnaissance missions.
