Photo of Terry's Texas Rangers monument

Erected 1907 by surviving comrades.

The bronze statue, by Pompeo Coppini, portrays one of Terry's Texas Rangers astride a spirited horse. In 1861, during the Civil War, Terry's Texas Rangers were mustered at Houston after Benjamin Terry and Thomas Lubbock's call for volunteers. Ten companies of 100 men each were formally activated as the 8th Texas Cavalry, and during the following five years participated in many engagements defending the Southern Confederacy.
