If anyone can find a cavalry charge after May 9th 1865 at Palmito Ranch in Cameron County Texas,let me know. Here is an excerpt from the online Handbook of Texas. www.tsha.utexas.edu The full story of the battle is too long to post.
At three that afternoon, Colonel Ford arrived to reinforce Roberson with 300 men from his own Second Texas Cavalry, Col. Santos Benavides'sqv Texas Cavalry Regiment, and additional companies from Giddings's battalion, as well as a six-gun battery of field artillery under the command of Capt. O. G. Jones.
With mounted cavalry and artillery, Ford had the perfect force to deal with Barrett's infantry on the flat, open land around Palmito Ranch. Hidden by a group of small trees, Ford's men formed their line of battle. At 4:00 P.M. Jones's guns began to fire. After a brief bombardment, Roberson's men attacked the Union left near the river, while two other companies of Giddings's battalion struck its right. At the same time, the rest of Ford's men charged the enemy center. The southern assault came as a great surprise, and the Union line rapidly fell apart
