Re: Texas 32nd Flag Ectors Brigade
Lived in Lake Jackson in 1980-83, worked for a defunct company called Intermaedics.
The 32nd was a depleted brigade by War's end. out of 1107 men initially volunterred only 10 enlisted men and few officers were accounted for at the surrender in Meridian Missippi.
Most of those that survivced the Spanish Fort battle disperesed and left for home. Hood had massacered the Western theater remanants at Franklin Tenn. and there was little conficence in their leadership.
However it goes to the credit of the Confederate soldier, he mustered one more time and battled knowing the end was near and it was not in their favor. Their courage under fire is understanted by historians and rarly acknowledged by most writers.
Your ggf had something few men have and that is committment to something they believed.
Ron Brothers has just published a Lamar County history of the Confederate soldier and the conditions of the Red River counties during this time period. It contains my time line for the 32nd.
Tim Bell out of Waco has a history write up on the 32nd also and is one of best and most complete pieces of info.
Don't remember what or if I have shared with you. Do you have the time line? Also have a detailed battle map that dipicts the movement of the 32nd to the timeline.
Send me an email if you want the info.
