The Handbook of Civil War Texas is unveiled

Thrilling news (for me, anyway) arrived in my email today. The Texas State Historical Association, which produces the magnificent Handbook of Texas, has unveiled the Handbook of Civil War Texas, a collection of “more than 800 entries, including some 325 new articles about Texas people, places and events in the Civil War.”

Thrilling news (for me, anyway) arrived in my email today. The Texas State Historical Association, which produces the magnificent Handbook of Texas, has unveiled the Handbook of Civil War Texas, a collection of “more than 800 entries, including some 325 new articles about Texas people, places and events in the Civil War.”

The editors have essentially pulled together all the Handbook of Texas articles with any link to the Civil War and then supplemented the collection with the 300+ new pieces. Also sprinkled among the articles are beautiful Civil War-era images from two Southern Methodist University photo collections.

It’s an impressive achievement, and it’s sure to be a lasting one. Begin your journey into Civil War-era Texas here.
