"8th Texas Rangers Cavalry: Reminisces Of The Terry Rangers" by James Knox Polk Blackburn is a short history of this Texas cavalry regiment during the Civil War. J. K. P. Blackburn was a member of Company F, rising from volunteer private to captain of this famous cavalry unit so the history is told from his frontline prospective in that company.
Terry's Texas Rangers was one of the most famous Texas cavalry units in the Civil war. From a full strength of 1,200 at the start of the war, they could muster only about 200 in their last charge at the battle of Bentonville, North Carolina in 1865.
In the original, this short history of approximately 33,000 plus words is very rare and costly since it was printed in small numbers, in Volume 22, numbers 2 (July, 1918) and 3 (October, 1918) of The Southwestern Historical Quarterly.
A great bit of the storied Civil war cavalry history of the Texas military by a surviving eyewitness of that tremendous struggle.
There are approximately 33,000+ words and approximately 111+ pages at 300 words per page in this e-book.
