Good's artillery company. In the following spring he moved into Missouri, where he was joined by General Price with his Missouri troops, and the combined force being under the command of General Van Dorn, the battle of Elkhorn was fought, in which General Mc-Culloch was killed. In command of the right wing of the arMissouri troops, and the combined force being under the command of General Van Dorn, the battle of Elkhorn was fought, in which General Mc-Culloch was killed. In command of the right wing of the army he had put his command in position for a desperate charge, and had fearlessly gone to the front to discover the position of the enemy when he was shot; and the second in command being also immediately killed, some confusion was produced, which probably caused the battle to be a drawn fight, without a decisive victory for either side. In addition to the above named Texas commands, it appears that Maj. R. P. Crump's cavalry battalion and Teel's battery were with the Confederate army. Colonel
ich he did, prescribing for himself a district in Texas, east of the Trinity river, and north of what was known as the old San Antonio road, and requiring all commands, either raised or passing through the district, to report to him. A great deal of work was done there in advancing the service during the first half of 1862, as will appear further on. Before the end of the year 1861 the people of Texas had heard of the two splendid victories of the Confederate forces, that of Oak Hills in Missouri and that of Bull Run in Virginia; and while the information inspired a joyful pride, it discouraged the necessity for continued effort to follow the success attained. Volunteering in the service was very slow, especially in forming infantry battalions and regiments. The Confederate officers that were sent to organize troops in Texas were personally unknown, and consequently could exercise but little influence. General Hebert having his headquarters first at Galveston, and then about the
ver with gunboats, transports and an army of 30,000 or 40,000 troops and commenced a march up Red river. From what was afterward known, this course was adopted to reach the heart of Texas. It was reported, as one evidence of it, that the wagon train had in it scythes to reap the wheat. Walker's and Mouton's divisions and Tom Green's two brigades of cavalry impeded the Federal march up the river step by step until the 8th of April, 1864, giving time for a large number of Texas troops, and Missouri and Arkansas troops under General Price, to come in haste to their assistance. On the day named, General Price not having quite reached them, the battle of Mansfield was fought by the Texas and Louisiana troops under the command of Gen. Dick Taylor, the son of Old Rough-and-Ready President Taylor. From General Taylor's report it is learned that the following Texas forces were in the battle of Mansfield and that of Pleasant Hill, which took place on the next day: Maj.--Gen. John G. Walke
er, upon an average, in all of the many commands that went there from Texas. Other instances might be referred to, but this will suffice to illustrate the importance of every particular section in an extensive country, with conditions of climate varying from each other, furnishing if practicable a force sufficient for its own protection. In taking a survey of the operations of the Texas troops in the numerous battles in which they were engaged in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, the large number of promotions for meritorious conduct in them will attract attention as a remarkable result. Maj. 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-ge

Carter; and Chrisman's Arkansas battalion), Dunnington's Arkansas brigade, and White's Missouri brigade. The Texans with Hindman were partly engaged in the battle of Prairie Grove, December 7, 1862. The Nineteenth and Twenty-first cavalry, in a brigade commanded by Colonel Carter, attached to Marmaduke's division, took part in the expedition into Missouri in April, 1863, and several officers and men fell in a skirmish at Taylor's creek, May 15th. The battle of Honey Springs, Indian Territory, July 17, 1863, was fought by a Union force under Maj.-Gen. James G. Blunt, composed of Kansas, Colorado and Wisconsin troops, negroes and Indians, against a Confederate force under Brig.-Gen. Douglas H. Cooper, composed of the Texas regiments of Cols. Charles De Morse, L. M. Martin and T. C. Bass, Capt. L. E. Gillett's squadron, John Scanland's squa

Joining General Price in Missouri, he had chief command of the Confederates at the battle of Wilson's Creek, in which he won a glh 12, 1895. Brigadier-General James P.
