Uniforms of the Republic of Texas

CAVALRY
Corporal
Fatigue Dress

The gray fatigue uniform was also used extensively. Like the infantry version, trim was black, the winter version was kersey cloth, the summer jacket cotton and the summer pants white duck. Cavalry buttons and buckles were gold, rather than the infantry white metal. The sword knot and strap were buff colored.

Behind is the flag of the First Cavalry Regiment.
