    I am a descendant of Albert G. Rogers who was in this CSA unit . ...would anyone happen to know if there are any pictures of it? I have three relatives in this unit, and one (Stephen Rogers) in either the Yager's company mounted rifles or the Company E Baylor's regiment cavalry (I think that is possibly the 2nd regiment).

    No one seems to have any pictures of Albert G or Stephen, so I thought perhaps there might be a Confederate picture

    Welcome to the forum wesley1111.

    Original wartime Confederate unit photographs are extremely rare and most units never had such taken.

    Trying to find a wartime photograph of a specific Civil War soldier is a difficult undertaking and this is particularly true of Confederate soldiers. Presuming a photograph exists, it could take years to find it, if you ever did.
