Format: Hardcover
Anyone with experience in Civil War history, or with an interest in Texas history generally, is familiar with the work of Prof. Wooster of Lamar University. His academic and scholarly accomplishments and recognitions over the past half-century are many and deserved, and his list of publishing credits is lengthy. This volume follows logically from his TEXAS AND TEXANS IN THE CIVIL WAR (1995) and LONE STAR GENERALS IN GRAY (2000), helping to complete his portrait of Texas forces in the War between the States. Texas contributed seventy-eight infantry and cavalry regiments and thirty-five artillery batteries which saw service from the Virginia Tidewater to the California border (not even counting the fourteen regiments and independent battalions raised for state service, and which are not considered here). Many Texan soldiers served in the same unit throughout the War. Since the regiment, the basic military building block, was usually recruited in a single region of the state and was commanded by a local (elected) individual, the genealogical value of understanding the system is obvious. Nor is this simply a handbook setting out the key details of each unit (though those are included), but a narrative history and explanation of the Texas military establishment, the broad campaigns and specific battles in which its units fought, and the successes and failures of the men who commanded it. There also are nearly nine hundred footnotes (many of them considerably more than source citations) and a lengthy bibliographical essay, making this almost required reading for any student of the Civil War and any family researcher with mid-19th century Texas ancestry.

Ralph A Wooster did an enormous task of compiling all the regiments from Texas that were in the Civil War. He did an amazing task because Texas supplied thousands of troops and hundreds of regiments in all theaters of the Civil War. From the Texas regiments in the Army of Northern Virginia to the Texas Regiments who invaded Arizona and New Mexico Territories. Mr. Wooster lists every single one that includes Infantry Regimwnts, Cavalry Regiments, Texas Militia Units. Mr. Wooster also lists the Brigade Commanders, Regiment Officers in Charge, and Commanding Officers as well. The history of each regiment from the forming, conflicts and large scale battles involved, to the disbanding of regiments after the surrender this is told very interestingly that will hold the readers interest throughout. What makes this standout is that this is NOT a dry read! This book is a MUST have for researchers of Texas in the Civil War, Texas History, Genealogists, and Civil War Arm Chair Historians. An OUTSTANDING Book that is highly recommended!
