Agency History

On November 13, 1835, the Texas Consultation created the office of Adjutant General, as one of five heads of departments under the Commander-in-Chief of the Texian Army (the other offices being Inspector General, Quartermaster General, Surgeon General, and Paymaster General). On December 20, 1836, the 1st Congress passed "an Act to organize and fix the Military establishment of the Republic of Texas," which in addition to the aforementioned bureaus, created a Commissary General of Subsistence, a Commissary General of Purchases, and a Colonel of Ordnance, all of whom answered to the Secretary of War. On December 18, 1837, the 2nd Congress passed--and later passed again over President Sam Houston's veto--an act making the Adjutant General a position elected by the Congress; the first man so elected was Hugh McLeod. This arrangement lasted less than two years, however, with subsequent Adjutants General--beginning with McLeod on January 30, 1839--being appointed by the President. The 4th Congress combined the offices of Adjutant General and Inspector General on January 28, 1840, and the 5th Congress technically abolished this position on January 18, 1841. Yet Peter Hansborough Bell served as Adjutant General of Militia soon thereafter; and in legislation of February 1842, there is a reference to an Acting Adjutant General.

Accession Information

Accession numbers: 1904/003, 1932/012, and unknown others

These records (or at least the core of them) were transferred to the Texas State Archives by the Texas Secretary of State in two transfers, 1903 and 1905. The first transfer is described in the 1903 Report of the Commissioner of Agriculture, Insurance, Statistics and History as consisting of approximately 300 items, in three boxes, including 155 enlistments, muster and receipt (pay) rolls (1839-1845). The second transfer (itemized in AC 1904/003), occurred on July 8, 1905, consisting of between 190 and 200 items of correspondence, all records of the office of the Secretary of War. In the 1930-1932 biennium, the Texas Secretary of State transferred to the Texas State Archives a letter book of Almanzon Huston, Quartermaster General (1836). The Army Papers has also grown by accretion of items drawn from other record groups, especially the Secretary of State's Diplomatic, Consular, and Domestic Correspondence. (These records were named "Army Papers" by the Secretary of State. The misnomer has persisted and is, therefore, adopted.)

Detailed Description of the Records

 

Army correspondence, 1835-1846,
5.95 cubic ft.

This series consists of correspondence concerning the Army of the Republic of Texas, including letters, reports, orders, legislation, President's proclamations, and certifications. Dates covered are 1835-1846. The items were written to and from the Secretary of War, the Adjutant General, the Inspector General, the various captains and other officers of the Army of the Republic, the Presidents of the Republic, the Provisional Government, the Congress of the Republic, other Republic officials, and private citizens.
Some, but not all, of the items in this correspondence series have been calendared, in two separate locations. The accession file of the original accession of Army Papers (1904/003) contains a chronological list including date, author, recipient, subject matter, and a file number. A slightly fuller calendar, adding the place of each letter, was copied onto pre-printed index cards compiled in the first decade of the 20th century. This latter index file was augmented by items drawn from the Nacogdoches Archives and especially from the Diplomatic, Consular, and Domestic Correspondence of the Secretary of State, more accurately reflecting the present contents of the Army Correspondence. Both of these calendars are available upon request, but the researcher should remember several points: the Army Correspondence contains many items not in either list; many of the items in both lists are now located in the series corresponding to the appropriate department under the Secretary of War; and a large percentage of the items in the card index are not found anywhere in the Army Papers.
Housed separately are two additional types of oversized documents. Three of the items are Returns of Captain Andrew Neill's Company, 1st Regiment of Permanent Volunteers (February-April 1837), stationed at Colorado River, Texas; like most returns of personnel, these contain the following information: number of officers and enlisted men present and absent (by rank and by status--e.g., sick, extra duty, in arrest, etc.); name, rank, and remarks concerning commissioned officers; and name, rank, date, and remarks concerning all non-commissioned officers and soldiers required in explanation of alterations since the last return.
The other type of oversized document grouped separately consists of 14 recruiting accounts, which include the following information from the 1st Regiment Infantry and the 1st Regiment Cavalry at Galveston, Houston, and Velasco recruiting stations (1838-1839): number, names (in alphabetical order), age, size (height); enlistment data (when, where, by whom, and for what period); amount due and amount paid of $12 extra pay to re-enlisted soldiers; the letter of company first mustered into; remarks (transfers, discharges, desertions, apprehensions, etc.); and an account current on the verso.
There are also a considerable number of passes (1836-1837), signed by army captains, usually declaring "Let the bearer(s) pass and return by the ferry." These are maintained separately and arranged roughly chronologically by month.
Also included are jacket covers to some of the correspondence, which were created at some unknown date after the fact, probably by the Secretary of State. These jacket covers have been separated from the correspondence to which they related. The Army Papers jackets follow the following format: "Republic of Texas. Army [and Navy] Affairs. No._____. File Box_____. _____ to _____. Subject Matter:_____. [Date]." In addition, there are jackets to army-related Provisional Government records, Governor's Proclamations, and Secretary of State Diplomatic, Consular, and Domestic Correspondence.
Finally there are a sizable number of typed transcripts of unknown origin, mainly of Texas Revolutionary documents. These have been retained primarily because the originals of many of these documents are now missing from the Army Papers, although they are cited in that subgroup by William C. Binkley (ed.), Official Correspondence of the Texan Revolution (1936), and John H. Jenkins (ed.), The Papers of the Texas Revolution (1973). Of particular interest is a 27-page set of Army Regulations (undated).
Any surviving records created by the Adjutant General and the Inspector General have been absorbed into this series. Both positions were created by the Consultation on November 13, 1835, and again by Congress on December 20, 1836. They were combined into one position, that of Adjutant and Inspector General, on January 28, 1840; this office in turn was abolished on January 18, 1841, with the duties being assumed by the Secretary of War. However, the Adjutant General is mentioned as existing in legislation of February 5, 1842.

Records of the Quartermaster-General, 1835-1846,
3.97 cubic ft.

Created by the Consultation on November 13, 1835, and again by Congress on December 20, 1836, the position of Quartermaster-General was abolished by Congress on January 18, 1841; the duties were assumed by the Secretary of War. On December 11, 1841, Congress also abolished the office of Quartermaster of the Regular Army.
This series consists of quartermaster correspondence and other quartermaster records, 1835-1846. The correspondence includes letters, reports, orders, contracts, bonds, certifications, powers of attorney, letters of credit, etc. Of particular interest is a bound letter book, containing copies of letters and orders written by Quartermaster General Almazon Huston between March 5 and August 26, 1836; recipients of these letters included Secretary of War Thomas Rusk, Commander-in-Chief Sam Houston, President David G. Burnet, plus quartermasters and assistant quartermasters, Texian agents at New Orleans, captains and other army officers, and private citizens.
The other quartermaster records include receipts, requisitions, vouchers, IOUs, promissory notes, bills, abstracts (of expenditures, of issues, of requisitions, of bills, of disbursements), statements, accounts current, returns of public property, estimates of funds required, statements of appropriations, etc. Officials who most often figure in these documents include Quartermaster-General William G. Cooke, Acting Quartermaster R. S. Neighbors, Quartermaster and Commissary General William L. Cazneau, and Auditor Charles Mason.
In addition to records which clearly pertain to the office of the Quartermaster-General, this series also contains other records of goods and services which probably belong to the Commissary General of Subsistence, the Paymaster General, or some other official of the War Department, but which are not so designated. In addition, especially during 1839-1841, there are many records whose outside notations indicate that they were paid out of multiple accounts, e.g.:
"Com'y Dept. -- $8,"
"QM -- $55,"
"Ordnance -- $39."
Multiple-account records of this type are placed, for consistency, among the Quartermaster-General records.
There is also one volume, which is an alphabetical index of names, followed by numbers up to approximately 1,980, labelled on its flyleaf "Index to Payments made by William G. Cook, Quartermaster General, 1839."
Arrangement
These records are arranged by type of record, beginning with correspondence (which is chronological), followed by the other quartermaster records, which are arranged roughly chronologically, by month. Oversized records are listed at the end of each respective section.

The Office of Commissary General of Subsistence, aided by two Commissaries of Subsistence, was created by Act of Congress on December 20, 1836. It was abolished on January 18, 1841, but there is reference to an Acting Commissary General of Subsistence in legislation of February 5, 1842.
This series consists of subsistence correspondence, including letters, reports, orders, contracts, certifications, letters of credit, etc.; and other records of the Subsistence Department, including requisitions, receipts, vouchers, invoices, bills, abstracts of purchases, abstracts of expenditures, abstracts of issues, abstracts of rejected vouchers, statements, accounts current, returns of commissary stores, estimates of funds required, etc. Dates covered are 1836-1842.

This series consists of letters, orders, contracts, bonds, letters of credit and other certifications, written to and from Commissaries General of Purchases A. S.

Records of the Pay Department, 1835-1845,
1.99 cubic ft.

The office of Paymaster General was created by the Consultation on November 13, 1835, and again by Congress on December 20, 1836, aided by three Paymasters. The position of Paymaster was abolished on January 28, 1840; the position of Paymaster General was abolished on December 11, 1841, but there was reference to the Paymaster General of Militia in legislation of February 5, 1842.
This series consists of correspondence to and from the Paymaster General, including letters, orders, estimates of funds required for pay of soldiers, letters of credit (auditor's certificates), bonds, powers of attorney, and other certifications; plus other records of the Pay Department, including requisitions for payment of troops, receipts of money (for pay, horses, tobacco, fuel, quarters, expenses, etc.), travel vouchers, accounts current, statements, abstracts of vouchers, abstracts of expenditures, lists of stoppages, etc. Dates covered are 1835-1845. Officials who most often figure in these documents include Paymasters George W. Poe and J. W. Scott, Paymaster General Jacob Snively, and Acting Paymaster General B. B. Sturges.
Maintained separately are pay vouchers, 1837-(1840) 1841, which are arranged alphabetically by the last name of the staff or field officer, and therein chronologically. Information on these documents (which are folded once and labelled on the outside) include the following: pay (for the officer and for private servants who are not soldiers), clothing (for private servant), forage (for horses), subsistence (for the officer and for his private servant); commencement and expiration dates, term of service, pay per month, amount, number of days, number of rations per day, post where due, price of rations; and remarks.
Also maintained separately are two types of specialized oversized document. One includes abstracts of payments made by the Paymaster of the Texas Army (1838-1841), which include the following information: number of vouchers, dates of payment, to whom paid, rank, commencement and expiration dates; amount of pay, subsistence, forage, bounty; officers' servants pay, subsistence, and clothing; total amount; and remarks. (There is also one volume, with an index, which contains abstracts of payments made by the various paymasters and paymasters general of the Texas Army between August 1838 and September 1841.)
The other type of specialized oversized document includes receipt roll extracts (1838-1841), most of which are multi-company. Those receipt rolls which correspond to specific companies are to be found in the Military rolls series of Adjutant General's records.
Arrangement
The correspondence is arranged chronologically, followed by the other paymaster records, which are roughly chronological by month. Pay vouchers are arranged alphabetically by the last name of the staff or field officer, and therein chronologically.
