CONFEDERATE TEXAS TROOPS

13th Regiment, Texas Cavalry (Burnett's) (13th Mounted Volunteers)

13th Cavalry Regiment was organized at Crockett, Texas, during the winter of 1861-1862 with about 900 men. Some of its members were from Centerville, Crockett, Madisonville. In the summer of 1862 it was dismounted and later assigned to O. Young's and Waul's Brigade in the Trans-Mississippi Department. The unit participated in various conflicts in Louisiana and Arkansas including the engagement at Jenkins' Ferry. It disbanded during the late spring of 1865. The field officers were Colonels John H. Burnett and Anderson F. Crawford, Lieutenant Colonel Charles R. Beaty, and Major Elias T. Steale.
