Most histories of Civil War Texas—some starring the fabled Hood’s 
Brigade, Terry’s Texas Rangers, or one or another military figure—depict 
the Lone Star State as having joined the Confederacy as a matter of 
course and as having later emerged from the war relatively unscathed. 
Yet as the contributors to this volume amply demonstrate, the often 
neglected stories of Texas Unionists and dissenters paint a far more 
complicated picture. Ranging in time from the late 1850s to the end of 
Reconstruction, Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance restores a 
missing layer of complexity to the history of Civil War Texas.
