Civil War Texas: The Soldiers and Families of the Lone Star State

Course Description

This course will examine why Texans voted to join the Confederacy, how the families on the home front coped with wartime conditions, and where the men on the battlefront fought. We will discuss the soldiers who enlisted in the Confederate army but also the dissent within the state that led some Texans to join the Union army. In addition, we will look at how the women back home dealt with their changing roles as heads of households.
