Maneuvering with an army is advantageous; with an undisciplined multitude, most dangerous.

-- Sun Tzu

TEXAS IN THE WAR 1861-1865

An Encyclopedia of Texas in the Confederacy
Annotated, Compiled, and Edited by Colonel Harold B. Simpson, U.S.A.F., (Ret.) Original Compilation by Brig. General Marcus J. Wright C.S.A.
Published by the Hill Junior College Press ISBN 0-912172-29-0

This is an excellent little reference book that lists all Confederate and State troops enlisted in Texas during the war. Regiments and Battalions are listed and sorted by unit type ie. infantry, cavalry, and artillery. The officers are listed for each unit with occasional footnotes of additional information. An extra section covers Hood's Texas Brigade in greater detail.

This book does not list troop strengths or cover muster rolls of private soldiers, but it is still a very good resource.
