Thank you Robert Webb. I have been studying the war for a number of years (1980) and have spent many hours in diaries, journals, letter collections, and in old news papers (online). At half price books I find many older published diaries and have found only a few from the Texas units. Thanks for the information. Now, there is a book you must, should, need, and it should be required reading for the complete U.S. Adams, Charles, When in the Course of Human Events, Roman & Littlefield Publishing Group, Inc. Lanham, Maryland, 2000. It is so important that I have 3 copies and loan out the two paper backs. Again, thanks for the info.
