Maps: Texas in the Civil War

While perusing the internet recently, I came across an interesting series of maps created by Dr. Donald S. Frazier, a professor at McMurry University. If you’ve ever wondered where particular Texas units were stationed during the war, then these maps will be of interest. His map series titledTexas in the Civil War depicts the location of each Texas unit during every quarter of the war; he also highlights the location of significant battles. Dr. Frazier drew the maps for my two Civil War books, Peculiar Honor: A History of the 28th Texas Cavalry and Widows by the Thousand: The Civil War Correspondence of Theophilus and Harriet Perry, 1862-1864. Regular readers of this blog will recall that a two part interview with Dr. Frazier appeared in September 2009.

  1. U. of Oklahoma Press is releasing an expanded edition of their Texas historical atlas sometime this month. Hopefully, it has some significant Civil War coverage.
