Commander: Lieutenant Colonel William C. Claiborne

This battalion was organized in May, 1862, with four cavalry companies. There is no evidence that the unit was ever formed because Claiborne was promoted to Colonel of the 7th Regiment Confederate Cavalry in October, 1862. No company muster rolls exist for the 4th.

The four companies were transferred to the 7th.They later became part of the 16th Battalion North Carolina Cavalry.
