about this item

The Texans from Hood's Texas Brigade and other regiments who fought at Gettysburg on 1-3 July 1863 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. Speeches 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 that took place on 26-27 October 1910 at the state capital in Austin, Texas. These accounts describe their actions at Devil's Den, Little Round Top and other areas during the battle. For the first time ever, their experiences are compiled in Texans at Gettysburg: Blood and Glory with Hood's Texas Brigade.

REVIEWS

a compendium of the historical record of these experiences, skillfully assembled and lightly edited...The veterans’ recollections of Gettysburg are the heart of the book and, though repetitive at times, generally interesting. I found the accounts of personal bravery of some of Hood’s men inspiring. Several of the veterans’ stories of death and suffering at Gettysburg are also poignant, even a century and a half later...The strength of Texans at Gettysburg
is that it presents personal, sometimes gripping, accounts of some of the most intense fighting in that great battle. The recollections of Hood’s old brigade also add an individual dimension to a grand, impersonal battle that involved over 170,000 men and left an estimated 50,000 of them casualties...I recommend this book to readers interested in Gettysburg, and particularly
the experiences of the Texans and Arkansans who fought there.
