KENTUCKY MUSTANGS

KENTUCKY MUSTANGS. The Kentucky Mustangs, one of the six companies of the Second (or LaFayette) battalion, which served under James Walker Fannin at Goliad, was composed of Burr H. Duval's company of Kentucky Riflemen and the remnant of B. L. Lawrence's company of Tennessee volunteers, which had been formed in Nacogdoches in December 1835. Of the forty-five men of the company, only eight escaped the Goliad Massacre. See also TEXAS REVOLUTION.
