Books on Texas History

book cover from The Texan Army

The Texan Army 1835-46
By Stuart Reid, Richard Hook

It stands to wonder if descriptions like "shabby black frock coat" are a result of appearance or contrived from opinion.

However these gentlemen echo the bleak facts to detail the grim reality of the daily struggles and the battle for independence by frontiersmen and the handful of army officers drawn together by destiny and hastily assembled into fighting units.

The book recounts the revolution, the republic and the army of the republic using vivid descriptions including drawings of the casual attire of the volunteers.

The Texan Army 1835-46 is more than just another book about Texas. It covers a period of the states history that bears reading for any serious lovers of Texas history. Sphere: Related Content
