History of the 19th Texas Infantry
Just before his untimely death from cancer Col. Gary Canada gave Dr. DeVries the unfinished manuscript of this book and ask him to finish it. So the majority of this book was written by Gary Canada. Dr. DeVries wrote the introduction and Appendix sections. This book details the activities and battles of the 19th Texas Infantry during the War for Southern Independence (1861-1865). The great-grandfathers of both Dr. DeVries and Col. Canada proudly served in the 19th and through this book the authors honor their noble ancestors.
