The Fate of Texas : The Civil War and the Lone Star State Paperback / softback
Edited by Charles D. Grear
Part of the The Civil War in the West series
Choice Outstanding Academic Title. Texas has often been overlooked in Civil War scholarship, but this examination shows that the Lone Star State-though definitely unusual-was decidedly Southern.
Eleven noted historians examine the ways the civil war touched every aspect of life in Texas and approach the subject from varied perspectives-military, social, and cultural history; public history; and historical memory-to provide a greater understanding of the roles of women and slaves during the war, and how veterans and the aftermath of loss helped pave the way for the Texas of today.
