The monument honoring Terry’s Texas Rangers on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol was designed by Pompeo Coppini and erected in 1907 by the remaining comrades of the 8th Texas Cavalry. Also known as Terry’s Texas Rangers, these men fought throughout the Civil War (1861-1865) and earned a reputation as tough and relentless fighters during their time.
