So 2 years later it was my intention (again) to read it to prep for the same event in 2009 (named Into the Piney Woods)...Again I did myself an injustice by not reading this fine work.
Lowe takes us from 1862 Hempstead, TX training sites, up through NE Texas into Arkansas, down into Louisiana, then back into Arkansas, then finally home to Hempstead, TX at war's end...I enjoyed this book immensely and wonder why everyone clamours over the big battles (i.e., Gettysburg, Vickburg, Atlanta, etc.) without realizing how the War was fought at sites (with just as much sufferage)just up the road from Houston, TX, Little Rock, AR, and Shreveport, LA.
This book should be required reading in 7th Grade Texas History to ensure children realize that "Yes, Texas was in the Civil War...and yes your kinfolk served in it".
