IIRC they were transferred to Wheeler after Forrests fracus w/ Bragg. They were w/ Wheeler most of the rest of the war. Part of the reason they were sent to Wheeler was to make up his losses from his "brush" w/ Minty. I'm going to have to look again when that was exactly and exactly which units were involved.

I wish I could recall where I read so much on the 8th TX Cav, about as tough a unit as you could get. One of the bits I always associate w/ those boys is an incident when a couple boys of the 8th mounted their horses to cross the street. Just one of those little snippets that makes them real and intriguing to me.
