3RD LA CAV'S "TENSAS CAVALRY"

I found this article online posted by the Fort Sam Houston Museum. I think its a great piece on a Louisianian by the name of Captain William Wallace Walker. I will let you read the piece on him-veteran of the Civil War and Spanish-American War! When you click on the article you will notice a photograph of a group officers. These were members of the "Tensas Cavalry" and were officers of the 3rd Louisiana Cavalry. The officer sitting at the bottom left was the eventual Colonel of the 3rd Louisiana Cavalry, Isaac F. Harrison. Its a great photo!
