From the Back Cover:

There are many stories from the Civil War; some of the ones that took place in the West have been overlooked. Texas and New Mexico Territory (present-day New Mexico and Arizona) were the scene of fierce fights and courageous actions on both sides. This book presents stories of those skirmishes, strategies, and soldiers.

Even though some Texans--such as the famous Sam Houston--opposed secession, Texas joined the Confederacy on March 2, 1861, and put tens of thousands of men into battle to support the South. Even as they fought off Federal forces, the Western soldiers had to defend their homes from Mexican bandits and Native American attacks.

It was a savage but proud period in the history of the West, and one that makes for fascinating reading.

Steve Cottrell is descended from a Sixth Kansas Cavalry member who served in the Indian Territory during the Civil War. He currently resides in Carthage, Missouri. He has participated in battle reenactments, including one for the Academy Award-winning motion picture Glory, which he writes about in the appendix to this book. Cottrell also wrote Civil War in the Indian Territory and coauthored Civil War in the Ozarks, both published by Pelican.

Andy Thomas's powerful illustrations also appeared in Civil War in the Indian Territory. Thomas is a professional artist who also resides in Carthage. His artwork has gained acclaim nationwide.

Book Description Pelican Publishing Co, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Andy Thomas (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. Did you know that eleven days before Fort Sumter, South Carolina, was fired upon, the Civil War had already begun in Texas? The Civil War in the West has not been the focus of much attention, but it was the location of fierce fighting and stormy conflicts. Not everyone wanted to secede from the Union, although between sixty and seventy thousand Texans volunteered to take up arms. Sam Houston, governor of the territory in 1861, opposed secession and was forced out after the legislature approved it. Texas troops proceeded to conquer the New Mexico Territory (all of the present-day states of New Mexico and Arizona) for the Confederacy. The war was all the more difficult in the West, because they had a unique problem: defending themselves from hostile Native Americans and Mexican bandits while also fighting the Federal forces. Many skirmishes were fought against those enemies. This exciting volume tells all about the war in Texas and New Mexico Territory: the intense combat, the brilliant strategies, and the heroic soldiers who fought for their homeland.
