This bio says He was a Col. in the 1st. Texas Cavalry. Another bio that I've read says He was a Col. In the 1st. Texas Mounted Rifles. Was there really a difference?

The Civil War Book of Lists has a list of 6 sets of brothers who were Confederate Generals. For some reason The McCulloch Brothers , Ben and Henry, were not on that list.
