Excerpt: "Quite possibly the strongest part of the book is Barr’s historiographical essay..... which highlights the major studies on Texas during the Civil War published in the last two decades. Also important are essays by Linda S. Hudson and John Gorman, which examine the Knights of the Golden Circle in Texas before the war and the frontier defense units during the conflict."
