The National Guard's 22nd Cavalry Division was created from the perceived need for additional cavalry units. It numbered in succession after the Regular Army Divisions, which were not all active at its creation. Going into World War II, the US Army Cavalry contained 3 Regular, 4 National Guard, and 6 Organized Reserve cavalry divisions as well as 1 independent cavalry brigade (the 56th from Texas).
