8th Texas Cavalry Regiment
There were many Texas Rangers, but only the 8th Texas
Cavalry were Terry's
Texas Rangers -- one of the hardest fighting cavalry units
during the War Between
Today, Historical Reenactors come from Texas,
Arizona, Iowa and New Mexico to recreate the life and times
of those brave men as authentically and historically correct as
possible a century and a half later.
Terry's Rangers were one of the first
reenactors to also regularly portray Federal Cavalry. It's not
unusual to see
Rangers portraying both Confederate and Federal Cavalry in the same
battle reenactment in an effort to present more realistic
representations of troop ratios. With a complete Federal outfit
and an extra gray
blouse tied to a bedroll, "Galvanizing" to the other side is seamless.
