Non-Indian Units in Indian Territory

Ken Martin,
.
I'll jump in first. ..I agree. ..We need a listing of the Union and Confederate units that served in Indian Territory.
.
I prepared a web page for this listing that may grow to 10 feet tall. ..And yes submit in this thread that may also grow to a foot or two.
.

.
I think is would be nice if submitters included the approximate size of the military units and any relevant webpage.
.
Below is my initial submission. ..Don't hesitate to correct my entries.
.
************************************************

Bourland's Border Regiment Cavalry (625 men listed in the American Civil War Research Database of Duxbury MA and 831 men listed in the National Park Service Sailors and Soldiers database.)
.
Martin's 5th TX Cavalry Partisan Rangers (812 men) .... on Feb 10, 1865 Martin absorbed some of Bourland's Regt., while most of Bourland's Regt was then commanded by J.R. Diamond.
