17th Regiment, Texas Cavalry (Moore's)

17th Cavalry Regiment was organized during the spring of 1862 with men from Nacogdoches, Cherokee, Smith, and Red River counties. The unit was soon dismounted and sent to Arkansas where it was captured at Arkansas Post in January, 1863. After being exchanged it was consolidated with the 18th, 24th, and 25th Texas Cavalry Regiments (dismounted), and served in Deshler's, J.A. Smith's, and Granbury's Brigade. This command fought with the Army of Tennessee from Chickamauga to Nashville, then was active in North Carolina. The 17th contained about 1,000 men when it was organized. The 17th/18th/24th/25th reported 200 casualties at Chickamauga and totalled 690 men and 520 arms in December, 1863. Only a handful surrendered on April 26, 1865. The field officers were Colonels G.F. Moore, James R. Taylor, and Thomas F. Tucker, and Lieutenant Colonels Sterling B. Hendricks, John McClarty; and Sebron M. Noble.
