Bourland in North Texas and Indian Territory During the Civil War:
Fort Cobb, Fort Arbuckle & the Wichita Mountains

ISBN: 0-9761405-3-5
Pages: 1,014 pages including four indexes: one is a 128-page Name Index.
Binding Type: Oilcloth hard cover
List Price: $125.00 each.
Shipping: $ 8.00 each, my 8.5x11 book weighs 7.3 pounds.

I have transcribed 225 militia listings and the militia correspondence of 34 counties of North Texas in
order to interpret the Bourland Papers -- about 200 Civil War era documents, 43 of which are not in the
Official Record, but should be. Topics that I have addressed extensively are: the Brush Battalion; Quantrill
in North Texas; gruesome details of four Comanche-Kiowa Indian raids into North Texas including the 1864
Battle of Elm Creek; 1862 Tonkawa Massacre in Anadarko, I.T.; Camp Napoleon Meeting attended by
5,000 to 7,000 Indians plus J.W. Throckmorton in now Grady County, OK; and the Confederate treaties with
the tribes of Indian Territory, especially the Reserve Tribes of the Leased Lands.

Starvation in Indian Territory among all of the tribes is a central theme of my book.

About 70 % of my 1,014-page study is from handwritten records and about 90 % is from contemporaneous sources. It addresses the Civil War era in the area bounded by Oklahoma City, Dallas, Texarkana, and  Childress, Texas. My book is described on my website,
