e Southern Confederacy. Many of the citizens who signed the call for the convention, and of the members of the convention, and of the senators and representatives in the special session of the legislature, afterward attested the sincerity of their purpose in what they did, by voluntarily entering the Confederate army, which deserves to be commemorated as a part of the history of that eventful period. Signers of the call for the convention subsequently held rank as follows: John Gregg, Thomas Green, John A. Wharton, Henry E. McCulloch, brigadier-generals; R. Q. Mills, Edward Clark, C. M. Winkler, Geo. Baylor, Geo. Flournoy, John R. Baylor, colonels; Wm. Bird, lieutenant-colonel; D. M. Pendergast, John J. Good, W. C. Pitts, captains; and Thos. J. Chambers, aidede-camp to a general in Virginia the first part of the war, though advanced in years. Of the members of the convention who became officers besides John Gregg and John A. Wharton, were Allison Nelson, Wm. P. Hardeman, Jerome B.
Col. Philip N. Luckett, Lieut.-Col. E. F. Gray and Maj. John H. Kampmann were the officers of an infantry regiment which went to the Rio Grande in December, 1861. In the fall of 1861, H. H. Sibley was appointed brigadier-general, and appeared in Texas to organize a brigade for a campaign into New Mexico and Arizona. Three cavalry regiments were promptly formed: The Fourth cavalry, Jas. Reily, colonel; Wm. R. Scurry, lieutenant-colonel; and Henry W. Ragnet, major; the Fifth cavalry, Thos. Green, colonel; Henry C. McNeill, lieutenant-colonel; S. A. Lockridge, major; the Seventh cavalry, Wm. Steele, colonel; J. L. Sutton, lieutenant-colonel; A. P. Bagby, major (as shown by the reports from the war department). There were the following troops added to those regiments in that campaign: First cavalry regiment, Wm. P. Hardeman, colonel; Peter Hardeman, lieutenant-colonel; Michael Looscan, major.

The two gunboats were manned by volunteers of Green's brigade, converted for the occasion into horse marines, also by a company of artillery—the whortation to move in that direction. This call was for 300 men. It was promptly responded to, Colonels Green and Bagby volunteering to lead the men of their respective regiments. After these officers , having been ordered back to their regiment by Colonel Reily, after having once reported to Colonel Green, who commanded the land force on the steamers. In addition to these troops, Lieutenant Hartime to consider the demand for the surrender of the whole fleet. This message was borne by Colonel Green and Captain Lubbock. While these gentlemen were on their way in a boat to fulfill their misexecution his heroism was sublime. In the latter he was most ably and gallantly seconded by Colonel Green, commanding the land forces serving on board of our fleet; by Captain Lubbock, commanding th
ier-General Polignac's infantry brigade, and Mosely's, McMahon's and the Valverde batteries. The battle of Mansfield was glorious in its timely conception, wise plan of attack, splendid execution, and victorious result that sent the confident invader with his whole host back on the road he came; and the battle of Pleasant Hill gave a thundering warning to the Northern invader to seek a safer place by continued retreat, with his hopes of renown by the conquest of Texas blasted. Brig.-Gen. Thomas Green, beloved and honored by everybody as a man, the chevalier of Texas soldiery, whose training as a soldier was commenced at San Jacinto and was perfected as captain of cavalry in Indian warfare and at Monterey in Mexico, and whose flag floated in the ascendent in every battle in Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico where his sword was drawn, determined to capture the enemy's gunboats on Red river.

John Henry Brown, who was an officer in the army from nearly the first to the last, in his valuable history of Texas reported that of Texans in the army, one became a general, Albert Sidney Johnston, the highest rank; one lieutenant-general, John B. Hood; three major-generals, Samuel B. Maxey, John A. Wharton and Thomas Green; 32 brigadier-generals, 97 colonels, and 15 commanders of battalions. Nearly all of those officers attained the ranks mentioned from lower ranks, by their valor in battles. It would occupy too much space to mention each one of them and describe the conduct which caused his promotion, if such a thing were practicable, which it is not now. It may not be improper to speak of five of them who were educated at West Point, as follows: Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston was a native of Kentucky, a
re commanded by Gen. E. R. S. Canby, and Col. Thomas Green was in immediate command of the Confederder McNeill to drive the enemy from the mesa. Green then took command of the line of battle by ord6 wounded; Fifth Texas mounted volunteers, Colonel Green's regiment, 20 killed, 67 wounded; Seventh astonishing ardor and courage of our troops.
