Seven Militia Brigades of North Texas

 

.

From July 1861 until December 1861, the seven militia brigades of North Texas were organized.  This study contains 240 militia listings of men from 34 counties of these 7 brigades plus the brigade correspondence of the 7 brigades, which contains references to Indian Territory.  It should be noted that the objective was to enroll about 100 soldiers in each militia, but many captains fell short of enrolling 100.  (Volume II. Appendix has 300 pages transcribed from the original records of 34 counties).

15th Brigade:    Collin County and Grayson County.
