21st Infantry Regiment was organized during the spring of 1864 by consolidating the 11th (Spaight's) Texas Cavlry and Infantry Battalion and Griffin's Texas Infantry Battalion. Serving in the Trans-Mississippi Department, the unit was stationed at Sabine Pass with 14 officers and 235 men. Later it moved to Louisiana, then returned to Texas. It disbanded prior to the surrender in June, 1865. Its commanders were Colonel Ashley W. Spaight, Lieutenant Colonel William M/H. Griffin, and Major Felix C. McReynolds.

11th (Spaight's) Cavalry and Infantry Battalion, formerly the 6th Texas Infantry Battalion, was a mixed command organized with 400 men in April, 1862.
