These were the officers of the 7th Texas Cavalry from Trinity County, Texas who led Company E as it started for the Rio Grande with Sibley's Brigade in the Confederate Army's push to wrest control of the Western United States from the Union Army in the Autumn of 1861. In time the 7th Texas would turn to the eastern arena and participate in many battles. In the East, in the heat and smoke of fierce combat, it would emerge as one of the best mounted regiments in the CSA, its Regimental Colonel promoted to the rank of Brig. General. During the Civil War, many mounted regiments which began as cavalry were often by command, unhorsed and made into infantry. Not so the 7th. This regiment entered the war horsed and ended the war horsed because of it's exemplary performance in the field. The 7th Texas Cavalry, Company E represented Trinity County with distinction and courage. We the descendants of these 7th Texas, Trinity County horsemen are proud to remember them with honor, always.
