Scope and Contents

The Texas National Guard serves as a state and federal agency. During peace time, the Guard is under the command of the governor and the adjutant general. In wartime, the Guard is under federal supervision. The National Militia Act of 1903 (the Dick Law) made all of the different militia units within each state subject to the U.S. Army. During World War I and World War II, the Texas National Guard served as the U.S. Army 36th Division.
