Introduction

Texas Military Units

Most units were numbered, however, many were named. See the table below for lists of the regiments, battalions, batteries, and other units.

The information in the lists of Texas Military Units comes from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors web site. That web site also can be searched by the name of a soldier.
