Description

Although still a frontier state during the Civil War, Texas played a significant role in the war. More than 70,000 Texans served in the military during the war, the majority in the Confederate army. Thirty-seven of those who served as generals in the Confederacy had rights to claim a Texas background, either through birth or residential adoption. Several of these men, notably Albert Sidney Johnson, John Bell Hood, Ben McCulloch, Samuel Bell Maxey, and Tom Green, have been studied in separate biographies, but in this work, the author has provided additional insight into their careers and set them within the contest of Texan involvement in the conflict.

 

Ralph Wooster has done extensive research on the Civil War and now magnifies the specific actions of Texans who led or, in some cases, misled their troops. Individual photos complement the detailed profiles of each general. The result is an in-depth and interesting focus on Texans in gray who each commanded their troops in a unique way.
