The 8th was engaged thruout the western Theater..from Shiloh until surrender.. even then, many refused to surrender, in an effort to cross the Mississippi and continue fighting.
They were the unit with Forrest in the famed Fallen Timbers charge during the retreat from Shiloh.
they lost their commander in their first fight, yet are today still referred to as Terry's Texas Rangers, tho they had many names diuring the war including "The Texans"
