Thomas Hinds

"Thomas Hinds [1780 - 1840] became first lieutenant of the Jefferson Troop of Horse."  "His marriage [to Malinda or Leminda Green] strengthened the already warm attachment between himself and General Jackson, with whom he was in after years to come in close contact in some of the most thrilling episodes of...history...". Source

From Thomas Hinds' biography at Jefferson County, Mississippi, GenWeb:

"After the Battle of New Orleans, General Andrew Jackson said of Jefferson Troop of cavalry and its commanding officer Thomas Hinds, 'the cavalry excited the imagination of one army and the astonishment of the other.'”
