Terry’s Texas Rangers were a group of volunteers for the Confederate Army during the Civil War who became one of the most successful mounted forces in history.
Confederate President Jefferson Davis said of Terry’s Rangers, “The Terry Rangers have done all that could be expected or requested of soldiers.”
For their actions, the group has been immortalized with a bronze statue in front of the Texas State Capitol. “It’s a very nice statue,” said Marlent Flores, who took pictures next to the statue with her family. “It does look very Texas.”
