The 8th Texas Cavalry Regiment, was a regiment of Texas volunteers assembled by Colonel Benjamin Franklin Terry in August 1861. Though lesser known than the Texas Brigade (Hood's Brigade, ANV), the 8th Texas Cavalry distinguished itself at several battles during the American Civil War. In four years of service, Terry's Texas Rangers fought in about 275 engagements in seven states. The regiment earned a reputation that ranked it among the most effective mounted regiments in the Western Theater of the American Civil War.[Wikipedia].
