14th Texas Cavalry

We continue looking at Texas Civil War Veterans today with this picture of John Alphonso Beall of the 14th Texas Cavalry. I am a little surprised by his weapon which is a Sharp's Rifle. Most of the pictures of Cavalry soldiers show them with smaller arms like revolvers, swords, and knives. In any way a fairly impressive photo of a veteran.

  1. I would think managing that thing on horseback would be a tad tricky.
