    A special headright was issued for military service. Soldiers who arrived in Texas between March 2, 1836 and August 1, 1836 received the same amount of land given to original colonists in a first class headright (4,605 acres for the head of a family).

    "A league of land equals 4,428 acres and a labor, 177 acres, combined they add up to 4,605 acres [19 km²]. This was the
    amount of a headright (first-class) granted to "all persons except Africans and their descendants, and Indians, living in Texas

    SEVENTEENTH TEXAS INFANTRY

    SEVENTEENTH TEXAS INFANTRY
    . The Seventeenth Texas Infantry, a Confederate regiment, was organized at Camp Terry, Austin, Texas, during March 1862. The regiment had ten companies composed of men from Angelina, Bastrop, Bell, Burleson, Burnet, Caldwell, Colorado, Falls, Fayette, Lampasas, Lavaca, Smith, Trinity, Travis, and Williamson counties. The original commander of the Seventeenth Infantry was Col. Robert T. P. Allen, a West Point graduate who had served in the Seminole War and founded Bastrop Military Academy in Bastrop. He was a stern disciplinarian who stressed the need for training of the troops before going into battle.
    The Seventeenth Infantry spent its entire career in the Trans-Mississippi Department and fought and served in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Following its organization and initial training, it was ordered to Little Rock, Arkansas, in August 1862. There it was assigned to the Second Division, Second Corps, Army of the West. It wintered at Camp Nelson in Little Rock and suffered heavy casualties from disease. Benajah Harvey Carroll, a private in the regiment and later a well-known Baptist minister and prohibitionist, stated that the unit lost more men from measles and pneumonia in the winter of 1862?63 than it did from all the battles it fought.
    In January 1863 the Seventeenth narrowly missed capture at the battle of Arkansas Post, where some 4,800 Confederate soldiers were taken prisoner. The Seventeenth Infantry, marching from near Pine Bluff, was unable to reach the battle site before the surrender of the Confederate troops.
    The battle of Milliken's Bend in June 1863 was the first significant engagement for the Seventeenth Infantry. Milliken's Bend was a victory for the Union, because the Federals stopped Confederate efforts to lift the siege of Vicksburg. In the battle the Seventeenth Infantry regiment suffered the following casualties: one officer and twenty enlisted men killed, four officers and sixty-one enlisted men wounded, and three enlisted men captured or missing.
    The Seventeenth spent the balance of 1863 engaged in various actions in Louisiana. Included in these were fights at Richmond, LaFourche Crossing, Brashear City, Donaldsville, Harrisonburg, Fort Beauregard, Morgan's Ferry, Sterling's Plantation, Opelousas, Barre Landing, Washington, Grand Coteau, and Camp Pratt. Colonel Allen was relieved of command of the Seventeenth in November 1863. He was succeeded as commander by George Washington Jones.
    In the spring of 1864 the Seventeenth Texas Infantry took part in the Red River campaign against the advance of Union troops led by Gen. Nathaniel Banks into Louisiana. It fought in or near Franklin and at Fort DeRussy. Fort DeRussy was manned by 350 Confederates, including members of the Seventeenth Texas Infantry, when it was attacked by members of the Union Army's Sixteenth Corps. The fort fell to the Union troops. Among those captured when it fell were one officer and thirty-nine enlisted men of the Seventeenth Texas Infantry. The Seventeenth also fought at Natchitoches and Campti before being involved in the major battles of the Red River campaign at Mansfield and Pleasant Hill on April 7?9, 1864.
    Shortly after the battles at Mansfield and Pleasant Hill, the Seventeenth was ordered to Arkansas. It marched to the Little Rock area and took part in operations against Union Gen. Frederick Steele. The Seventeenth fought at Poison Springs, Arkansas, on April 18, 1864, at Mark's Mills in Arkansas on April 25, 1864, and at Jenkins' Ferry on the Saline River in Arkansas on April 30, 1864.The unit was ordered to Shreveport, Louisiana, in the middle of 1864. It stayed there until ordered to Hempstead, Texas. It was surrendered to Union forces at Galveston, Texas, on June 2, 1865.

Also, my ancestors Robert HaynesPOGUE and his wife Martha Jerusha ABERNATHY lived in Burnet Co.at Fairland, (after living in Milam Co. 4-5 yrs.) and are buriedin the Churchyard at Crownover Chapel there. Evidently they settledin that area during the time the open range was being fenced andwere in the cedar fence post business. One of their grandsons,"B" POGUE was Burnet Co.

    The 8th Texas Cavalry, C. S. A.
    In 1861, Texas went to war and called upon the citizenry to defend her. One of the early groups to answer that call was Terry's Texas Rangers. Organized and led by Benjamin Franklin Terry, a wealthy sugar planter from Brazoria, the regiment mustered in at Houston in September 1861 with just over a thousand men.
    Originally bound for Virginia, the regiment was placed under the command of Albert Sydney Johnston and traveled to Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they elected their officers and officially organized the regiment. The War Department in Richmond designated the regiment as the 8th Texas Cavalry. They had been heralded in New Orleans, and all along their route, as "The Texas Rangers." Technically, they may not have been "Texas Rangers," but this point seems to have been lost to people east of the Mississippi. During the war, they were referred to by a variety of names, including: "the 1st Texas Ranger Regiment"; "Wharton's Regiment"; "Harrison's Regiment"; "Cook's Regiment", "Wharton's Rangers"; "The Rangers"; and even simply as "the Texans."
    Terry's Rangers first charged into battle near Woodsonville, Kentucky, on December 17, 1861. In this relatively small engagement, they suffered the devastating loss of Colonel Terry. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Lubbock was elected to command the regiment, but died of illness before assuming the duty. In his stead, John Austin Wharton was elected to the role. Wharton was eventually promoted to General, as was Thomas Harrison, the man who followed him in commanding the Rangers.
    The Rangers distinguished themselves throughout the war by their skill and willingness to fight. Because of their abilities, and the arms they carried, they were regarded as a "charging regiment," frequently called upon to act as a form of shock troops. They were engaged at Shilo, and provided the main body of troops for the remarkable charge at Fallen Timbers. They led the way when General Forrest, by sheer audacity, took Murfreesboro from a superior enemy force. At Bardstown, it was the Rangers who led Wharton's Brigade into the mass of Yankee cavalry to carry the day. They fought from horseback and on foot. They traveled hundreds of miles behind enemy lines to raid the enemy's sources of supply and communication. They were called upon time and again to provide pickets and scouts for the Army of Tennessee. Alexander Shannon was a Terry Ranger who hand-picked men from the group to form the notorious Shannon's Scouts. Shannon and his men punished Sherman in his march across Georgia and into the Carolinas.
    The final charge of Terry's Rangers was at Bentonville, North Carolina, on March 21, 1865, when General Hardee urgently called upon Captain Matthews to check the Federal advance. After nearly four years of hard fighting, a shout was raised once again and one hundred and fifty men, all that remained of this gallant regiment, charged into the blue clad infantry and sent them into a panic-stricken retreat. Even when Johnston surrendered his army a month later, many of the Terry Rangers refused to admit defeat and set off in groups hoping to join Kirby Smith's Army and continue the fight west of the Mississippi. Only when word reached them that his army had broken up did they surrender.
    This website is intended to remember and honor the Terry Rangers for the heroic and selfless manner in which they fought to defend Texas and her neighbors. Regardless of one's perspective on the causes for which they fought, it must be acknowledged that these volunteers were soldiers who faced tremendous hardships and fought valiantly when called upon. This isn't a website about politics, about race relations, or about "the cause." This site is about a remarkable group of volunteer soldiers, some heroes and some rogues, who courageously and honorably faced amazing obstacles and circumstances in our history.
    The material on these pages comes from a wide variety of sources, and should be useful to genealogists, historians, and reenactors. It should be interesting and informative to the casual passerby as well. We hope that you will find your visit here both pleasant and informative. We welcome your suggestions and comments that we might better tell the story of Terry's Texas Rangers. We are continually gathering and digitally archiving information about the Terry Texas Rangers and will add more as time permits.

    The 8th Texas Cavalry, C. S. A.
    In 1861, Texas went to war and called upon the citizenry to defend her. One of the early groups to answer that call was Terry's Texas Rangers. Organized and led by Benjamin Franklin Terry, a wealthy sugar planter from Brazoria, the regiment mustered in at Houston in September 1861 with just over a thousand men.
    Originally bound for Virginia, the regiment was placed under the command of Albert Sydney Johnston and traveled to Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they elected their officers and officially organized the regiment. The War Department in Richmond designated the regiment as the 8th Texas Cavalry. They had been heralded in New Orleans, and all along their route, as "The Texas Rangers." Technically, they may not have been "Texas Rangers," but this point seems to have been lost to people east of the Mississippi. During the war, they were referred to by a variety of names, including: "the 1st Texas Ranger Regiment"; "Wharton's Regiment"; "Harrison's Regiment"; "Cook's Regiment", "Wharton's Rangers"; "The Rangers"; and even simply as "the Texans."
    Terry's Rangers first charged into battle near Woodsonville, Kentucky, on December 17, 1861. In this relatively small engagement, they suffered the devastating loss of Colonel Terry. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Lubbock was elected to command the regiment, but died of illness before assuming the duty. In his stead, John Austin Wharton was elected to the role. Wharton was eventually promoted to General, as was Thomas Harrison, the man who followed him in commanding the Rangers.
    The Rangers distinguished themselves throughout the war by their skill and willingness to fight. Because of their abilities, and the arms they carried, they were regarded as a "charging regiment," frequently called upon to act as a form of shock troops. They were engaged at Shilo, and provided the main body of troops for the remarkable charge at Fallen Timbers. They led the way when General Forrest, by sheer audacity, took Murfreesboro from a superior enemy force. At Bardstown, it was the Rangers who led Wharton's Brigade into the mass of Yankee cavalry to carry the day. They fought from horseback and on foot. They traveled hundreds of miles behind enemy lines to raid the enemy's sources of supply and communication. They were called upon time and again to provide pickets and scouts for the Army of Tennessee. Alexander Shannon was a Terry Ranger who hand-picked men from the group to form the notorious Shannon's Scouts. Shannon and his men punished Sherman in his march across Georgia and into the Carolinas.
    The final charge of Terry's Rangers was at Bentonville, North Carolina, on March 21, 1865, when General Hardee urgently called upon Captain Matthews to check the Federal advance. After nearly four years of hard fighting, a shout was raised once again and one hundred and fifty men, all that remained of this gallant regiment, charged into the blue clad infantry and sent them into a panic-stricken retreat. Even when Johnston surrendered his army a month later, many of the Terry Rangers refused to admit defeat and set off in groups hoping to join Kirby Smith's Army and continue the fight west of the Mississippi. Only when word reached them that his army had broken up did they surrender.
    This website is intended to remember and honor the Terry Rangers for the heroic and selfless manner in which they fought to defend Texas and her neighbors. Regardless of one's perspective on the causes for which they fought, it must be acknowledged that these volunteers were soldiers who faced tremendous hardships and fought valiantly when called upon. This isn't a website about politics, about race relations, or about "the cause." This site is about a remarkable group of volunteer soldiers, some heroes and some rogues, who courageously and honorably faced amazing obstacles and circumstances in our history.
    The material on these pages comes from a wide variety of sources, and should be useful to genealogists, historians, and reenactors. It should be interesting and informative to the casual passerby as well. We hope that you will find your visit here both pleasant and informative. We welcome your suggestions and comments that we might better tell the story of Terry's Texas Rangers. We are continually gathering and digitally archiving information about the Terry Texas Rangers and will add more as time permits.

    CONFEDERATE TEXAS TROOPS

    8th Regiment, Texas Cavalry (Terry's) (1st Rangers) (8th Rangers)

    8th Cavalry Regiment, usually called Terry's Texas Rangers, was organized with 1,170 men at Houston, Texas, in December, 1861. Its members were raised in Houston, Richmond,Columbus, Gonzales, and Wharton, and Bastrop County. The regiment was one of the hardest fighting cavalry units in the war. It was assigned to Wheeler's, Wharton's, and T. Harrison's Brigade, and fought at Shiloh, Murfreesboro, and Chickamauga. Later it was active in the Knoxville and Atlanta Campaigns, the defense of Savannah, and the campaign of the Carolinas. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered with about 30 men. The field officers were Colonels Gustave Cook, Thomas Harrison, Thomas S. Lubbock,Ben. Franklin Terry, and John A. Wharton; Lieutenant Colonels Samuel P. Christian, Marcus L.Evans, Stephen C. Ferrill, and John G. Walker; and Majors William R. Jarmon and Leander M.Rayburn.Page: accessed, downloaded; 15 February 2012; Wayne Hamilton Civil War military records
