The Texas 35th (Likens') Cavalry Regiment was organized in October, 1863, by consolidating Likens' and Burns' Texas Cavalry Battalions. Many of themen were from Jefferson, Hopkins, Upshur, and Smith counties. The unit served in H. Bee's and Bagby's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department, and participated in various conflicts in Louisiana including the engagements at Mansfield and Pleasant Hill. Early in 1865 it moved to Beaumont, Texas, and remained there until the end of the war. The regiment was included in the surrender in June.
Colonel James B. Likens, Lieutenant Colonel James R. Burns, and Major William A. Wortham.
