The 16th Cavalry Regiment about 1000 strong, was organized during the spring of 1862 with men from Gainesville, Brenham, Farmersville and McKinney. It was later dismounted and assigned to Flournoy's, Waterhouse's and Scurry's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department, and was active in Louisiana and Arkansas. In the attack at Milliken's Bend in June 1863, the unit lost 19 killed, 47 wounded and 1 missing, but casualties at Jenkins' Ferry were not reported. In March 1865, it was sent to Hempstead, Texas, and here disbanded in May. The field officers were Colonels William Fitzhugh and Edward P. Gregg and Lieutenant Colonel William W. Diamond.
