John sold his father's best mule, bought a horse, returned to the company and enlisted under his own name in October 1863. Likens and Burns Battalions were consolidated at Houston in November 1863 and 3 independent companies from Terrell's Regiment were added to form Likens' 35th Texas Cavalry. The regiment served on the Texas Gulf Coast until March 1864 when they were ordered to support Gen Richard Taylor in the Red River Campaign. After Gen Banks' Federal army was driven back to the Mississippi River, the 35th served along the upper Atchafalaya River until February 1865. The regiment was dismounted and stationed at Galveston until the end of the war. Private John A. Stevens was given a Soldier's Discharge on May 25, 1865 which is still in possession of the family along with 22 confederate bills he brought home after the war.
