The Dead Men Wore Boots an Account of the 32nd Texas Volunteer Cavalry, C S a 1862-1865
Austin: The San Felipe Press. Fine in Very Good- dust jacket. 1966. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; First edition, limited to 500 copies, this being copy 193, signed by the author on the limitation page, with a note from the author laid in. 10 1/2" x 8 3/4". Red boards in colorful original dust jacket. 127 pages. This is the story of a Confederate regiment which formed in South Central Texas and solemnly pledged to support the Southern cause. There are only very brief notiations in the official records to recount their experiences. The author searched all known records to fill in the missing parts of the story--from family accounts, letters, pictures, diaries, and even a frail, dog-eared hymn book to piece together the history of a portion of the Civil War west of the Mississippi. The result is a vivid account of the valor and endurance of the men of the 32nd Texas Cavalry Regiment, C. S. A. Laid in is a manuscript note from the author in pencil, "If you are a/descendant Please/let me know--/Carl". Condition: A fine book, with a tight solid binding, sharp board corners and clean and unmarked pages. The VG- dust jacket has a small closed tear at the upper end of the front flap, a sunned spine, and a 5" diagonal tear to the upper left corner of the front panel, long ago repaired with tape. The jacket is now protected in a removable archival cover. ; Signed by Author .
