The Texans from Hood's Texas Brigade and other regiments who fought at Antietam on 16-17 September 1862 described their experiences of the battle in personal diaries, interviews, newspaper articles, letters, and speeches.
Their reminiscences provide a fascinating and harrowing account of the battle as they fought the Army of the Potomac.
This book collates their writings alongside speeches that were given in the decades after the battle, during the annual reunions of Hood's Brigade Association and the dedication of the Hood's Brigade Monument at the state capital in Austin, Texas.
These accounts describe their actions at the East Woods, Dunker's Church and Miller's Cornfield, and other areas during the battle.
For the first time ever, their experiences are compiled in Texans at Antietam: A Terrible Clash of Arms, 16-17 September 1862.
