Pvt. William T. Goin served in Company D, Ninth Texas Cavalry Brigade during the Civil War, according to “Texas Civil War Soldiers, 1861-1865.” 

It is unknown when he enlisted, when he was discharged or even if he survived the war.  Half of the troops of the Ninth Brigade were casualties.

The Brigade was also known by the name of its most famous commander, Lawrence Sullivan “Sul” Ross.  The brigade had seen action at the Battle of Pea Ridge or Battle of Elkhorn Ta-vern in March 1862.  These regiments, recruited mainly from twenty-three central, northeastern, and north central counties, were veterans of campaigns in Indian Territory, Arkansas, and Missouri as well as in the Battle of Iuka and Battle of Corinth.

As part of Gen. Earl Van Dorn's cavalry division, the remount-ed Texas Brigade raided the federal supply base at Holly Springs, Mississippi  in December 1862, an action that halted Ulysses S. Grant's land advance to Vicksburg.  On March 5, 1863, the brigade, operating in Tennessee, captured a large Union reconnaissance force at Thompson's Station. Later, it participated in the first Battle of Franklin on April 10, 1863.

The brigade returned to Mississippi and occupied a position generally on the periphery of action during the Vicksburg campaign.  The Texans spent most of the next five months operating against Union troops in the Yazoo River valley before being ordered to Georgia.

During the ensuing Atlanta campaign, the Texans spent 112 days under fire and participated in eighty-six engagements. They began the general fighting, May 25-June 5 at New Hope Church near Dallas, Georgia, but attrition had so reduced their ranks that the Texas regiments were overrun by the superior forces of Edward M. McCook and Hugh Judson Kilpatrick later that summer.  After the fall of Atlanta the Texans marched with John Bell Hood's troops into Tennessee. Throughout the disastrous campaigns of November and December 1864, they served as vanguards and rear guards, raided Union supply trains, and battled federal cavalry.  In the withdrawal from Nashville they were one of Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest's two brigades covering the Confederate retreat.
