Nine years before Texas joined the Union, she fought a war with Mexico for her Independence. Volunteers from Arkansas rode off to Texas to help. This book lists company histories for the soldiers in the First Regiment from Conway, Saline, Pope, Hempstead, Pulaski, Sevier, Randolph, Independence, and Lawrence Counties; and the Second Regiment from Washington, Crawford, Johnson, and Scott Counties. (Remember the county boundaries were very different in this time period.) Information about the formation, duties, leaders, and activities of the units is included. Rosters of the men list residence, company, unit, rank, promotions, substitutes, discharge dates and deaths during the enlistment period. Additionally, Captain Bean's roster lists birthplace, enlistment date, and occupation. This book was originally published in 1984 by Morgan Books.
