One of the finest narratives relating to the 8th Texas Cavalry and his reminiscences of early Ellis and Dallas Counties. His experiences during the Civil War were both numerous and varied in nature, as he was wounded in Tennessee and captured, tried to escape, and was imprisoned. Eventually he was paroled and rejoined his command in time to take part in the middle Tennessee Campaign. Eventually, at the end of the war, he returned to Texas after declining parole and requesting to be sent home. One of the rarest and desirable of the Texas Confederate regimentals. Howes G279, “printed in a small edition.”

Only 120 Copies were made available to the General Public!!!

Some minor restoration suggested…reflected in price.
