A list of Texas Regiments and Battalions in the Confederate Service from 1861 to 1865, from published records. 2. The Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, published by the secretary of war. 3. A statement from the war department of Texas troops in service and in battles in other Southern States. In none of these, however, are stated the original organization of the commands, or the changes of the field officers by promotion or otherwise. These had to be obtained, when practicable, from other sources. Much information on these and other subjects was der

He was a major in the Mexican war and distinguished himself as major and lieutenant-colonel in the New Mexico campaign under General Sibley, also in the battle of Galveston, and as brigadier-general at Mansfield and Pleasant Hill. The recurring memory of the patriotic deeds of these heroes will ever be a pleasure, and will constantly verify the adage that Death's arrow finds a shining mark. Space fails to tell of the nobility in patriotism and manhood possessed by many comrades-in-arms, both officers and privates, who fell devoted to the cause for which they fought and died.

On October 7th, in the fight at the New Market road, General Gregg was killed. The Texas brigade, in the army of Northern Virginia, as well as many other commands, has insufficient mention in the meager reports of 1864-65 which are accessible. Many official reports of battles were lost or destroyed, and in many instances the campaigns were so active as to leave little time for making reports. At its last service the brigade was commanded by Col. Robert M. Powell;
is next service was with General Maxey in the Indian Territory, where he passed the winter of 1864-65, and he was then assigned to the command of a division of cavalry at Hempstead. After the fall of finally, at the end of the year, received his commission as brigadiergen-eral. In the spring of 1865 the war ended. General Harrison then returned to Texas, and in recent years has been a citizen ond General Gano made large and important captures. He was given command of a cavalry division in 1865.
