Most histories of Civil War Texas - some starring the fabled Hood’s Brigade, Terry’s Texas Rangers, or one or another military figure - depict the Lone Star State as having joined the Confederacy as a matter of course and as having later emerged from the war relatively unscathed.

The book Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance: Other Sides of Civil War Texas demonstrates the often neglected stories of Texas Unionists and dissenters which paint a far more complicated picture. The book's editor, Jesus F. de la Teja, will present an overview of the work and discover a missing layer of complexity to the history of Civil War Texas.
