Texas grew the same as Arkansas after the war and some North - South feuds continued into the late 1870s. Many counties in Texas voted to remain in the Union , especially the counties with a predominant German population.
Three of my great grandfathers moved to the west Texas frontier from Tennessee, Georgia and Arkansas within ten years after the end of hostilities. My fourth great grandfather was involved in the Lee-Peacock Feud in Fannin County Texas after the war and was in fear of being hanged by the Union League or federal authorities for alleged partisan activities during the war. In 1879, he also moved his family to the west Texas Frontier after the carpetbagger state government was tossed out of office. When that happened, cheap state school land became available to settlers on the frontier to encourage migration from the states devastated by the war.
The carpetbagger war repriation taxes which cost so many Texas families their prioperty and livelyhood was changed to the "pay-as-you-go" 1879 State Tax Reform Act that was signed into law by Gov. Oran Milo Roberts, a Confederate veteran who raised the 11th Texas Infantry Regiment, Walkers Texas Division.
In 1861, Oran M. Roberts led the passage of the ordinance which led to Texas leaving the Union.
