The unit served primarily in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana, and was the backbone of the Confederate forces of the Trans- Mississippi West. Its major contributions were in opposition to Gen. N.P. Banks' invasion of Louisiana, especially at Mansfield, Pleasant Hill, Jenkins' Ferry, and Milliken's Bend." (Jenkins, Basic Texas Books, page 17).
