I have been doing research on all of Forrest's cavalry troops and have run across a W. C. Bacot, who was originally in Company B of Forrest's Battalion and who eventually was a Major in Russell's 4th Alabama Cavalry Regiment. You may want to check, at least for the war history at www.itd.nps.cwss. Bacot commanded a battalion of 4 Alabama companies, who eventually were all incorporated into Russell's 4th Alabama. Bacot commanded these troops under Forrest in his 1862 Murfreesboro raid and during his 1st West Tennessee campaign ending at Parker's Crossroads in Tennessee. You can also find information on this unit at the Alabama State Archives,, it has a piece on the wounding of W.C. Bacot.
My Forrest site is if interested.
