"Terry's Texas Rangers"


This page is an entry point to detailed information about one of the most famous units in the Confederate Army, the legendary "Terry's Texas Rangers". In four years, the Rangers fought 275 battles in seven states. Only twice, in The War For Southern Independence, did a cavalry unit defeat an infantry army; Terry's did it both times.
