As many as 9,500 men of Hispanic heritage fought in the United States' Civil War. In Texas, the bitter conflict deeply divided the Tejanos−Texans of Mexican heritage. An estimated 2,500 fought in the ranks of the Confederacy while 950, including some Mexican nationals, fought for the Stars and Stripes. Vaqueros in Blue & Gray, originally published in 1976, is the story of these Tejanos who participated in the Civil War.
This edition of the history of these vaqueros contains the first comprehensive list, containing almost 4,000 names, ever compiled of the Confederate and Union Hispanics from Texas who served in the war.
Vaqueros in Blue & Gray presents a stirring saga of these brave people, their land, and their epic role in the Civil War and in the history of Texas.
