The Reminiscences of Major General Zenas R. Bliss, 1854-1876: From the Texas Frontier to the Civil War and Back Again

A resource for teachers, this book is a remarkably detailed account of his army service in Texas before and after the Civil War. Many scholars consider Bliss’ recollections to be one of the best from a soldier of the Old Army. Bliss’ memoirs serve as a rare and important window into Texas’ military, political, cultural, and geographical history.
