The shield is in the colors for the Corps of Engineers, the unit's original designation. The arms are based on local history. When General Nathan Bedford Forrest of the Confederate Army was in pursuit of Colonel Abel D. Streight in Streight's Raid through North Alabama, in the last days of the pursuit, Colonel Streight burned a bridge near Gaylesville in Cherokee County, Alabama. When General Forrest reached the site of the bridge the method of pulling the cannons and empty caissons over the river was by the use of ropes and grapevines. This historical fact may well be perpetuated in the coat of arms of the Battalion as a fitting example to them of how a difficulty may be overcome. The winged spur signifies that the unit is mounted. The motto is said to have originated with General Forrest, who is claimed to have said: Git That Furs'est with the Mostest Men."
The crest is that of the Alabama Army National Guard.
