Under the Rebel Flag: Life in Texas During the Civil War


This is a primary online source held by the Texas State library and archives commission. It Features historical records that highlight the history of Texas during the Civil War and under the Rebel Flag. From 2011-2015, the United States commemorates the Sequiscentennial of the American Civil War. Texas was among those states voting to secede from the Union and join the Confederacy in 1861. From the embattled cotton port of Galveston to the besieged Indian frontier, from the Louisiana border to the Rio Grande, Texans would spend the next four bitter, desperate years learning the reality of war.
