Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0876111703, Hardcover)

A comprehensive and authoritative single-source reference for the activities of the regular army in the Lone Star State in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Beginning with a series of maps that sketch the evolution of fort and camp locations on the frontier, Smith furnishes an overview essay, and includes in the guide sections on the departmental commanders and the military organization of the state, a dictionary of two hundred and thirty-three posts, forts, and camps in Texas, provides a year by year snapshot of total army strength in the state, the regiments assigned, and the garrisons and commanders of each major fort and camp. Supplying the only such synopsis of its kind, Part V, offers a chronological description of two hundred twenty-four U.S. Army combat actions in the Texas Indian Wars with vital details of each engagement. The nine hundred entries in the selected bibliography are divided topically into sections on biographical sources and regimental histories, histories of forts, garrison life, civil-military relations, The Mexican War, and frontier operations taken from a wide range of government records, primary and secondary sources, as well as, archeological reports.
