Arms of the Tensas Ranger Cavalry 1861

I looked back in my notes, a labor of sometime, because I knew I had specific information on the armament of the Tensas Cavalry(Tensas Rangers) company "A" of Wirt Adams' 1st Mississippi Cavalry: "The Tensas Cavalry, It's Origin, Tensas Parish, Louisiana" from the "Tensas Gazette January 26,1906" the author states "The arms of each member consisted of two Colts-Navy pistols and a saber".

Also in this same article it describes "The uniform, of which we had two suits, a dress and a fatigue. The dress was of blue cloth, trimmed with yellow. The fatigue was of gray and coarser material. Cavalry boots reaching to the knee. A gray hat, with a black ostrich feather....Each man's uniform cost him $48.00."
