Back in the spring my wife had surgery at Alexandria Surgical Center for carpal tunnel syndrome on each wrist... one at a time, several weeks apart. Anyway, the surgeon was named Dr. Texada. His great-grandfather is mentioned in Dr. Art Bergeron's revised edition of Dennis Haynes's book "A Thrilling Narrative: The Memoirs of a Southern Unionist." Haynes was a member of and leader of a company in the 1st Battalion Louisiana Scouts. A Union cavalry battalion raised in Central Louisiana. Sometime after the war he met up with Dr. Lewis Texada in Alexandria and Dr. Texada administered a severe beating to him with a cane. It gave us something to talk about besides insurance co-payments and the vintage orange Astros cap I was wearing and ended up letting him try on LOL!
