Steve,

Here is one place to look: http://www.1stalabamacavalryusv.com/

Although this site is maintained by a group of reenactors, it contains some good links and a bibliography including books by Glenda McWhirter Todd and Don Umphrey (who occasionally visits this board). Here is another site with good information and links:
http://www.swannco.net/1st_Ala_Cav/

You should also post on the Alabama in the Civil War Message Board:
http://history-sites.com/cgi-bin/bbs53x/alcwmb2/webbbs_config.pl
There you will find folks like myself who had ancestors in the 1st Ala. Cav. USV. (Unfortunately, I do not posses, nor have I seen, any first hand accounts or letters by my family members.)

Best wishes for your research efforts!

Rick
