Evault Boswell's Texas Boys In Gray is based on a 1912 publication about Texans who fought for the South in the American Civil War. This compendium of anecdotal remembrances by those who were there is nothing short of fascinating for the Civil War buff. Sometime humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, these stories and reminiscences capture the patriotism, fear, confusion, bravery, desperate hunger, camaraderie, and hazards of those days. From the horrible prison conditions to the joyful reunions, Texas Boys In Gray reveals both the humanity and inhumanity of the times. Very highly recommended for students of Texas history as well as Civil War enthusiasts, Texas Boys In Gray is enhanced with an index of 158 hometowns and the men who contributed from each of them.
