Agency History

After the annexation of Texas into the United States, the 1st Legislature provided for an Adjutant General to be appointed by the Governor, in "an Act to organize the Militia of the State of Texas" (April 21, 1846). The duties which fell to the Adjutant General included the issuance of all military orders; the maintenance of records of appointments, promotions, resignations, deaths, commissions, etc.; the receipt of monthly and annual returns, and muster rolls from the various military units; the keeping of the records of general courts martial; and recruitment and enrollment of Rangers and militiamen. The position of Adjutant General was itself reestablished by the Militia Law of February 14, 1860, by which act he also assumed the duties of Quartermaster General and Ordnance Officer of the State.

On February 1, 1861, the delegates to the Texas Secession Convention adopted an ordinance of secession, which was approved by the voters of the state on February 23. In early March the convention reassembled, declared Texas out of the Union, and adopted a measure making Texas one of the states in the newly formed Confederate States of America.

With the Civil War came the reorganization of the office, an act of December 25, 1861 creating an Adjutant and Inspector General, who would also serve as Quartermaster and Commissary General, and Ordnance Officer. Oversight of the 33 Brigades of the Texas State Troops plus the Frontier Regiment fell to this office, just as later Adjutants General would split their time between the Militia and the Rangers (whatever the prevailing terminology). The manpower and supply demands of the Confederate States Army, often conflicting with the needs and desires of the State of Texas, would affect the entire period of the war.

Most of the major battles of the Civil War were fought east of the Mississippi River. Ironically, the last battle of the war was a victory by John S. Ford over Union forces at Palmito Ranch near Brownsville on May 13, 1865, slightly more than a month after Lee's surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. General E. Kirby Smith formally surrendered the Trans-Mississippi Department on June 2, and Union forces under General Gordon Granger entered Galveston on June 19, 1865.

Detailed Description of the Records

 

Brigade correspondence, 1861-1865,
1.88 cubic ft.

These records consist of items received by the Adjutant General, mostly from the Brigadier Generals commanding the 33 brigades of Texas State Troops, dating 1861-1865; plus a register of letters received (mostly brigade correspondence), 1862-1863. The majority of the items are either letters, or else poll books and certifications of elections of officers, but there are also quarterly regimental returns, some orders issued from brigade headquarters, a few petitions for exemption from military service, some bonds for assistant quartermasters of brigades, four reports of hired persons, and a handful of morning reports. Some of the earliest letters are addressed to the Secretary of State and forwarded to the Adjutant General. Most of the letters received are labeled on the outside, e.g.:
  • "Brig. Gen. F. B. Sublett"
  • "San Augustine, March 2, 1862"
  • "In reference to the departure of men to the seat of war from his brigade, etc."
  • "3rd Brig."
The register of letters received, dating January 1862-November 1863, contains the following information, in three columns: the name and rank of the writer, the number of the brigade (or other organizational unit, e.g., Frontier Regiment, Quartermaster General, etc.), an item number, the place and date written, and the "purport" of the letter. If applicable, a further notation is placed next to the item number as to the disposition of the letter (e.g. "transmitted to Comptroller, March 17, 1863," or "deposited with the Secretary of State for safekeeping"). The total number of items listed in this register exceeds 4,000.
The researcher should also be aware that the Departmental correspondence series of the Adjutant General's records includes approximately 2.35 cubic ft. of correspondence covering the years 1861-1865, plus two volumes--the second of which is indexed--that contain copies of letters sent out by J. Y. Dashiell, Adjutant and Inspector General of Texas, between 1861 and 1863. Recipients of these letters include brigade officers, Ranger officers, county officials, and private citizens.
Arrangement
The correspondence is arranged by State Archives staff numerically by brigade, and therein roughly chronologically. Arrangement of entries in the register of letters received is roughly alphabetical by first letter of the last name of the writer, and then numerical/chronological in the order received. (The numbers start over with each letter of the alphabet, so that an item number would be A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2, etc.)

General information on brigades, 1861-1863, undated,
fractional

These records consist of nineteen items providing general information on brigades of the Texas State Troops, 1861-1863 and undated. The first group, all oversized, includes the following: an "Organization of the Texas State Militia" to November 23, 1861, listing the numbers of officers and men for each brigade; an abstract of troops reported to the Adjutant General under an act of December 25, 1861; a list of companies reported under the Governor's proclamation [1861]; a list of captains in the Frontier Regiment, with company letter and station (April 21, 1862); a list entitled "Information in regard to different brigades collated from correspondence in the office of the Adjutant and Inspector General" (ca. March 1863), that lists brigades, counties, camps, number of men called for, Brigadier General, post office, Colonels, Adjutant and Inspector Generals, and remarks; a list of companies raised in the different brigades of State Troops, with the date of their transfer to the Confederate States service (1863); and appointments of ordnance officers, matched with their counties and brigades (undated).
The second group includes: an "Abstract of Adjutant General Report" [1861]; a list of counties corresponding to the brigades; a partial list of Brigadier Generals with dates of their commissions (ca. September 1862); a register of resignations of Texas officers in Confederate States service, with name, rank, corps, and date of acceptance (1862-1863); a typescript list of Brigadier Generals of the Texas State Troops, with name, number of brigade, and counties composing the brigade (1864); a tabular statement showing the strength of the Texas State Troops, by rank (undated); a roster of officers, organized by regiment, with name, rank, and state (post-March 28, 1863); a list of company commanders in Colonel William C. Young's Regiment (undated); a list of appointments to the staff of Brigadier General J. D. McAdoo (undated); a list of Generals and Colonels with corresponding brigade and legions of the Confederate States Army (undated); a list of Texas Troops in the Armies of the Southern Confederacy (undated); and two unidentified indexes listing 54 companies.
Finally, there is an unidentified index, apparently to officers of the Texas State Troops and the Confederate States Army in Texas, containing the following types of entries: e.g., "Alexander, W. J., Lieutenant, AAQMTA 105, AAQMCA 106" [Acting Assistant Quartermaster Texas (or Confederate) Army?], or "Edgar, H. T., Captain, Company F, TA 11, CA 12."

Correspondence concerning conscription, 1862-1864, undated,
0.3 cubic ft.

These records consist mainly of petitions for exemption from state military service, as well as certificates of disability, certificates of substitution, surgeon's reports, protests of exemptions, requests for opinions on the conscript law, depositions of interrogations on conscription, a monthly return of citizens relieved from military duty, and a couple of lists of able-bodied men. Dates covered are 1862-1864, and undated.
Although some of the petitions are addressed to the appropriate brigadier general, the adjutant general, the chief justice of the county, or the county court, most are addressed to the Governor, who in turn may have forwarded them on to the Adjutant General's office. Notations occasionally say "Received from Governor [date]," or "Approved [date, name of General, Brigade], Texas State Troops." Other notations simply give dates received and answered, possibly by the Governor himself; these same types of notations appear on those petitions for exemption found in the records of Governors Lubbock and Murrah (which the researcher should also consult). It is unknown why some petitions are found in one record group, and some in another.
Arrangement
These items are arranged by State Archives staff roughly chronologically, by month and year.

Military orders, 1861-1865,
0.2 cubic ft.

These records consist of General Orders, Special Orders, and Circulars issued by the various military authorities of the state of Texas, and by those of the Confederacy relating to military affairs within Texas (and presumably collected by the Texas Adjutant General). They date 1861-1865. These orders include both printed and holographic documents. The largest single group of orders, approximately one-fifth of the total, were generated by the Headquarters of the District of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The Adjutant and Inspector General of the Confederate War Department in Richmond, Virginia, issued approximately 40 orders; and an equal number emanated from the State of Texas' Adjutant and Inspector General. Among the wide variety of other headquarters issuing orders, sometimes only a handful each, were: the Trans-Mississippi District, the Rio Grande Military District, the Western Department, the Department of Texas, the Headquarters of Troops in Texas, the Eastern Sub-District of Texas, the District of the Indian Territory, the Chief of the Commissary/Subsistence Office, the Conscript Service of the District of Texas, the Commandant of Negro Labor, the Reserve Corps of the State of Texas, McCulloch's Division, Walker's Division, Ringgold Barracks, Camp Colorado, and perhaps a dozen others. Because of the possibility of misidentification due to variant terminology and overlapping of jurisdictions, no attempt has been made to arrange the orders by issuing office (except for the Frontier Regiment; see Ranger records, 1861-1865), or even to separate those produced by the state from those produced by the Confederacy. Instead, a roughly chronological order (by month and year) has been adhered to.
Furthermore, no separation into General Orders, Special Orders, and Circulars has been made, since overlapping functions would render such an artificial division misleading. Normally, Special Orders concern specific individuals (e.g., "Captain J. F. Winter will proceed to Artillery Camp...," or "Captain John King will receive and account for 10,000 pounds of flour....") General Orders as a rule deal with broader matters (e.g., "Division and Brigade Inspectors will bear in mind that it is their especial duty to report any disobedience of orders...," or "All exemptions from military impressment of negroes made by the Cotton Bureau prior to this date are hereby sanctioned...") Circulars are usually the most general of all (e.g., "The following decisions of the Secretary of War are published for the information of all concerned....").
Extra (i.e., multiple) copies of printed orders have been removed and are located separately. These date from 1862 and 1863, and were issued mostly by the Adjutant General of Texas or the Headquarters of the District of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The most extreme example of duplication is an order dated December 11, 1862, of which approximately 85 extra copies are on file.
Arrangement
These records are arranged by State Archives staff roughly chronologically.

Ranger records, 1861-1865, undated,
0.94 cubic ft.

These records consist of correspondence, regimental poll books, court martial proceedings, general and special orders, monthly returns, powers of attorney, payrolls and reports of extra-duty men and hired persons, returns of medical officers and hospital payrolls, lists of arrests, hospital morning reports, reports of the sick and wounded, and returns of deceased soldiers. They comprise the records of the Frontier Regiment, the Mounted Regiment of Texas State Troops that apparently superseded it, and the three Frontier Districts in Texas, dating 1861-1865, and undated.
The Ranger correspondence consists of letters received by and sent to various officers of the Frontier Regiment, the Mounted Regiment, and the three Frontier Districts. Also included are assorted items such as petitions to the Governor recommending officers for the Frontier Regiment (December 1861); officers' oaths of loyalty to Texas and to the Confederacy; certificates of discharge, of disability, and of furloughs; a bond for a Ranger Quartermaster; an agreement to serve at Camp Breckenridge, signed by 68 men (January 12, 1863); a list of 112 privates signing an oath of allegience, Company D of the Frontier Regiment (March 5, 1862); and so forth. Folder 1 contains copies of correspondence (in one continuous list) between Governor Sam Houston, his aide-de-camp Colonel W. C. Dalrymple, and the various Ranger captains (January-June 1861).
The Regimental poll "books" are lists of elections for field officers for the Frontier Regiment (also called Mounted State Troops), for December 1862 and January-March 1863.
The Court martial proceedings include charges, testimony, supporting documents, verdict, and sentence of two general courts martial of the Frontier Regiment: one at Camp San Saba (April 29-May 27, 1862) of Private John W. Anderson, Private E. W. Greenwood, Lieutenant W. F. Robison, Private Robert Caviniss, Private W. A. Smith, Private William Rainbolt, and Private Elija Modgling; and a later one (August 18-September 9, 1862) at Camp Collier, of Private Benjamin H. Knowles, Captain J. J. Cureton, Sergeant L. P. Strong, Sergeant J. H. Chrisman, plus Lieutenant Robinson and Privates Caviniss, Rainbolt, Smith, Modgling, and Greenwood once again.
There are Military orders for the Frontier Regiment, the Mounted Regiment (Texas State Troops), and the three Frontier Districts, between February 1862 and December 1864. The following orders are apparently missing: General Orders 7, 9, 10, 11, 20, 21, 26 (for 1862), 13, 14, 15, 17, and 20 (for 1863); and Special Orders 34, 35, 38, 42, 51, 52, 74-78, 110, 111, 116 (for 1862), 125, 130, 2, 14-18, 47-56, 66 (for 1863), 93, 94, 99, 100, and 101 (for 1864).
The Monthly returns consist of Frontier/Mounted Regiment monthly returns on the company level (March-October 1862, and February, May, and August 1863) as well as on the regimental level (April 1862-December 1863), and for the 1st Frontier District (June 1864). The returns are detailed tallies of the numbers of officers and men present, absent, in arrest, sick, on extra duty, with and without leave, on detached service, deserted, missing in action, transferred, reenlisted, promoted, resigned, died of diseases/wounds, and discharged (by civil authority, by order, by sentence of a general court martial, for disability, and for expiration of service). Also included on the return are lists of men absent and on extra duty, of commissioned officers, and of enlisted men whose status has changed since the last return.
There are Powers of attorney executed by various soldiers, mainly for the purpose of collecting from the State of Texas all moneys owed for services as Rangers. The first four folders each contain multiple powers of attorney for individuals, with David Stiff of Collin County holding the largest number--at least 30, mostly from soldiers in Colonel William C. Young's Regiment.
The Reports and payrolls of hired persons consist of reports of persons (and articles) hired by Ranger quartermasters (and some commissaries of subsistence), and pay rolls of extra duty men (non-commissioned officers and enlisted men hired to do additional work).
There are Contracts made by physicians who agreed to serve as medical officers in Camps Colorado, Breckenridge, Salmon, San Saba, and Belknap, Red River Station, and Fort Arbuckle in Indian Territory (1861-1863).
Returns were filed of medical officers of the Mounted Regiment, Texas State Troops, at Camp Brunson (April-September 1863) and at Red River Station (July-October 1863); only the company surgeon is listed in each of these monthly returns.
There are Hospital payrolls, including a mustering-out and payroll of steward, wardmaster, cooks, nurses, matrons, and detached soldiers sick in the hospital at Ringgold Barracks, Army of the State of Texas, Rio Grande Military District (March-September 1861); a muster roll of the Hospital Department at Camp Colorado (June-October 1863); and rolls of extra-duty men in the hospital at Camp Colorado (August-December 1863), Camp Cooper (August 1863), and Camp Davis (November 1863).
There is one oversized List of arrests reported by an unnamed Ranger organization, after July 1, 1984. The information on the report includes names of those arrested, organization, where taken, by whom, date, where sent, and to whom turned over.
Hospital morning reports were made by surgeons of the Frontier Regiment for Camp Belknap (Company G), Camp Brunson (Company C), Camp Davis (Company A), Camp Verde (Company B), and Red River Station (Company D), between April 1863 and February 1864. Each is a daily tally (accumulated monthly) of the number of men in hospital, in quarters, taken sick, returned to duty, discharged, sent to the general hospital, and died, plus remarks.
Monthly and quarterly Reports were made of the sick and wounded soldiers of the Frontier Regiment at Camps Breckenridge and Cooper, Camp Brunson, Camp Salmon, and Red River Station (second and third quarters of 1863). These reports tally the numbers of cases and deaths for each class of diseases, and for each specific disease. In addition, the sick and wounded soldiers at Camp Brunson (second quarter, 1863) are listed by name.
Finally, there are two quarterly Returns of deceased soldiers of Company G of the Texas Frontier Regiment, at Camps Pecan and Collier (third quarter, 1862), and at Camp Colorado (fourth quarter, 1862), and of the 4th Battalion of State Cavalry at Sabine Post (fourth quarter, 1863).
Arrangement
These records are arranged by State Archives staff in various ways, depending on the type of document. Ranger correspondence is roughly chronological. Regimental poll books and court martial proceedings are chronological. Military orders are arranged first by type of order (General and Special), and therein numerically--which is to say chronologically. Monthly returns are arranged alphabetically by company, regimental returns chronologically. Reports of hired persons are arranged alphabetically by camp or fort.

Records of other sick, wounded, and dead, 1861-1863,
fractional

These consist of various records of sick, wounded, and dead soldiers (other than Rangers), 1861-1863.
One item is a copy of the Register of the Texas General Hospital at Quitman, Mississippi, for September through November 1862, with a duplicate for the month of September. This register lists 469 soldiers by name, rank, regiment, company, disease, when admitted, when returned to duty or died, county, and post office. In addition there is a supplemental list of 29 soldiers belonging to Texas commands deceased at the Texas General Hospital at Quitman, Mississippi (September 1, 1862-September 1, 1863); this list gives name, rank, company, regiment, date of death, disease, and amount of money left.
Also included are four lists of casualties. There are two oversized lists of deaths in the 1st and 5th Regiments Texas Infantry (1861-1862), listing date, name, rank, company, cause of death, place of death, and remarks. There is a list of soldiers killed, wounded, missing, and died of disease or privation from the 5th Texas at Gaines' Mill, Virginia (June 27, 1862). Finally, there is a photostat and transcript from the Ashbel Smith Papers at the University of Texas, of casualties in the 2nd Regiment, Texas Volunteer Infantry at Vicksburg.

Quartermaster records, 1861-1865, undated,
8.46 cubic ft.

These records consist of quartermaster returns, and other quartermaster records (requisitions, ordnance returns, and medical returns for the various State of Texas quartermasters, and also for the various Confederate quartermasters who operated in and for Texas; state vouchers, articles of agreement, statements, estimates of funds required, receipts of public funds, various abstracts, and reports and payrolls of hired persons, all strictly for the State of Texas). The records date 1861-1865, and undated.
Organization
These records are organized into two subseries:
Quartermaster returns, 1861-1865, undated, 4.23 cubic ft.
Other state quartermaster records, 1861-1865, undated, 4.23 cubic ft.

Quartermaster returns, 1861-1865, undated,
4.23 cubic ft.
These records consist of monthly and quarterly returns of quartermaster's stores, subsistence stores, provisions, clothing, and camp and garrison equipage, plus the supporting documents that accompanied those returns: receipts and abstracts; inventories, lists, and invoices; certificates of loss and wastage; and so forth. They date 1861-1865, and undated. Returns of ordnance and ordnance stores, and of medicines and hospital stores, are described separately. And since the quartermaster returns account for all supplies "received, issued, and remaining on hand," requisitions are not included; nor are vouchers, both of which are described separately.
Because of confusion and overlapping of jurisdictions, no attempt has been made to separate Texas state quartermaster returns from those of the Confederacy. Many of the records, especially those pertaining to Austin, San Antonio, and the various depots, are probably Confederate tax-in-kind records; but unless specifically identified as such, they are not included in the tax-in-kind group of Confederate records. Of those returns that are not identified by location, a majority are probably either from in the field or from the various quartermasters' headquarters in Austin or San Antonio.
"Provisions" include mostly foodstuffs: bacon, fresh beef, flour, sugar, salt, soap, peas, corn meal, wheat, hard bread, beans, rice, coffee, vinegar, candles, etc. "Quartermaster stores" include: fuel, forage, straw, stationery, barrack/hospital/office furniture, public animals, harness, and other means of transportation, building materials, veterinary tools, blacksmith's tools, carpenter's tools, wheelwright's tools, mason's and bricklayer's tools, miscellaneous tools for fatigue and garrison purposes, and "stores for expenditure" such as iron, steel, horseshoes, rope, etc.
More than one-fourth of these records originated in the various headquarters in Austin, 1861-1865. About one-half originated in the frontier installations that stretched along three major lines: the Rio Grande Military District from Ft. McIntosh (near Laredo) to Ft. Brown (near Brownsville); the line of captured federal forts extending through West Texas from below the Big Bend to Ft. Bliss; and the posts--some of them captured federal posts, some of them established for the Frontier Regiment under James M. Norris--stretching through the center of the state from Red River Station to Ft. Duncan (near Eagle Pass on the Rio Grande). A significant number of these records reveal supplies surrendered to the state of Texas by the United States Army in the spring of 1861. A relatively small number of records, grouped after those of San Antonio, come from about three dozen other sites in the state; some of these sites were quartermaster depots and/or munitions factories, others were training camps or temporary headquarters for state and/or Confederate troops. Quite often, a location is represented by only one or two documents. Finally, a handful of documents come from sites outside Texas, in Arkansas, Arizona Territory, Indian Territory, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Missouri.
The following charts indicate the Texas locations that are represented by these and succeeding quartermaster records.

Other state quartermaster records, 1861-1865, undated,
4.23 cubic ft.
These records consist of requisitions, ordnance returns, medical returns, state vouchers, articles of agreement, state of Texas statements, estimates of state funds required, receipts of state public funds, various state abstracts, pay vouchers, and reports and payrolls of hired men. They comprise the other quartermaster records (exclusive of quartermaster returns) of the State of Texas, dating 1861-1865, and undated.
The Requisitions are mainly forage requisitions, but also requisitions for fuel, stationery, subsistence stores, clothing, camp and garrison equipage, and special requisitions, for both state and Confederate military organizations. Requisitions for ordnance and medical stores are found with their respective returns.
There are Returns of ordnance and ordnance stores, plus all the supporting documents that accompanied those returns: receipts, abstracts, and vouchers; inventories, lists, and invoices; plus requisitions and accounts pertaining to ordnance. The researcher should note that returns for Austin, Decatur, and Fredericksburg all contain many receipts of ordnance for the various counties' ordnance officers.
The Medical returns consist of returns (mainly quarterly) of medicines, instruments, hospital stores, and hospital furniture received, issued, and remaining on hand at various military camps in the state, plus supporting documents; also, requisitions for medicines and hospital stores. In addition are a large number of documents, almost entirely vouchers, for the Texas [General] Hospital, located first at Quitman, Mississippi (Vouchers 395-485, October 1863-March 1864), and then at Auburn, Alabama (Vouchers 486-514 [528?], March-June [July?], 1864).
State of Texas Vouchers were authorizations for payment to individuals and firms for goods and services expended on account of state military needs. Most of the vouchers are also marked with a later annotation of receipt.
Because of the standardized nature of these and subsequent quartermaster records, it was possible to separate those pertaining to the State from those pertaining to the Confederacy.
Contracts or Articles of agreement were signed by private citizens and/or businesses to provide goods (mainly subsistence stores) and services (e.g., delivering mail, cutting out cloth for clothing, working as a blacksmith) to Texas state military organizations, mainly the Frontier Regiment.
There are financial Statements of State of Texas military posts and organizations, taking two forms: (a) monthly summary statements of funds received and disbursed, and (b) "accounts current," which are usually quarterly statements, in somewhat more detail, of all moneys received and expended by that organization or at that post. Both forms are balance sheets, where the debits equal the credits.
There are Estimates of funds required from the State of Texas by the quartermasters of various military posts, followed by estimates from the Frontier Regiment (1862-1864), the three Frontier Districts (1864), and various brigades of Texas State Troops.
There are also Receipts of State of Texas public funds, for subsistence and for contingencies. The amounts of money received are usually rather large.
Among the various State of Texas abstracts are abstracts of expenditures, of disbursements, of claims taken up and paid off, of indebtedness, of public funds transferred, of advances made to officers, of arrears due troops, etc.
Pay vouchers consist of state vouchers for pay and certain other expenses of 25 officers of all ranks, who served as commanders of frontier districts, quartermasters, commissaries of subsistence, ordnance officers, assistant adjutant generals, inspector generals, paymasters, aide-de-camps, surgeons, and agents/receivers for the State of Texas. Most of the officers were on the staff of the 6th Brigade, 3rd Frontier District, Texas State Troops. Information on these vouchers includes amount (and time period) of pay and subsistence for the officer; of pay, clothing, and subsistence for all private servants who are not soldiers; and forage for horses. Also included is a description of all servants, with names, complexion, height, color of eyes and hair. There are multiple copies of quite a few of the vouchers.
The officers represented are: Brigadier Generals J. D. McAdoo and John S. Griffiths; Colonels Horace Cone, Sackful Machin, and H. E. McCulloch; Lieutenant Colonel P. N. Luckett; Majors William Quayle, George B. Erath, James M. Hunter, Oscar A. Norwood, Russell De Armond, and J. D. Newsome; Captains B. E. Tarver, John R. Franklin, W. A. Montgomery, W. H. Hamman, John P. Hill, Albert S. Roberts, and H. W. Cook; 1st Lieutenants G. H. Wooten, Sam C. Upshaw, and A. K. Leigh; and Agent/Receiver James Duff.
Finally, the Reports and payrolls of hired men include the following records: reports and receipt rolls (payrolls) of men hired by the Quartermaster General of the State of Texas in San Antonio (March-September 1861); a descriptive list of persons (actually, one teamster) hired in the Quartermaster's Department (August 1862); a descriptive roll and clothing account of Private Isaac M. Wright, San Antonio Barracks (September 1862); reports of persons hired at San Antonio by James Duff, receiver for the State of Texas (February-April 1861); monthly receipt rolls for armorers and guards employed by the Ordnance Department in Austin, 1863-1864; a payroll of the State Percussion Cap Manufactory (April 1864); a monthly report of persons hired by Ben Henricks, the Assistant Quartermaster General (April 1864); a list of employees of George W. White, Commissary Agent (July 1863); a list of purchasing commissary agents (with their respective counties, undated); and three receipt rolls for soldiers commanded by Captain George R. Freeman, assigned to guard the State Treasury until the arrival of federal troops (June-July 1865).
Arrangement
These records are arranged by State Archives staff by type of document. Therein arrangement varies. Requisitions, ordnance returns, and medical returns are arranged in four lists: major sites in Texas, other sites in Texas, sites outside Texas (each further arranged alphabetically by camp/fort/depot/station, and therein chronologically), and those with no location (arranged chronologically). Vouchers, statements, estimates of state funds required, receipts of state public funds, and abstracts are arranged alphabetically by camp/fort/depot/station, and chronologically therein. Articles of agreement are arranged chronologically. Pay vouchers are arranged alphabetically by the name of the officer.
