You stated only twice did Infantry break & run before Cav... I noted that was incorrect. You also stated the 8th TX Cav was a fearsome unit & I agreed wholeheartedly. It isn't parroting but adding to a discussion, filling in blanks if you will.

Terry's boys did not enter the scene w/ 2 pistols & two shotguns each. It was more complex than that. I doubt many if any showed up w/ two pistols each. If they had they likely would have found their spare in the hands of a man who was going w/out. Reality of war and a military organization. The CS was criticly short of pistols for the entire war.
