Yes, that is the book! I have not seen it in a bookstore yet, just
online. That is a great website to which you posted a link, thank
you. My g-g-grandfather was in the First Brigade, Company D. It was
great to see the muster roll there, as well.

I just noticed that a book has been published about this group which
fought at Vicksburg as well as the Red River campaign. Has anyone
read the book yet? Anybody here have any info on these soldiers who
were known as "Walker's Greyhounds"?
I just picked up a copy of the book here recently, but have not had the time to read it. It looks to be a decent Division study on the Texans and their service during the Civil War. The only reason why I picked it up, was I rarely come across books here in NJ dealing with the Trans Mississippi Theater of the war.
Hope this helps. The exact title is "Walker's Texas Division C.S.A.- Greyhounds of the Trans-Mississippi" by Richard Lowe. It is published by LSU Press.

The book is the first modern history of Walker's Texas Infantry
Division, and Professor Lowe did an excellent job with it. Anyone
interested in the Trans-Mississippi Department should at least read
the book if not purchase a copy.
