Description:

Photograph of a memorial to Texans who served the confederacy in Brown County. "Camp Collier, C.S.A. Located 13 Mi. southwest, this camp was one of a chain of Texas frontier posts a days horseback ride apart from the Red River to the Rio Grande. Occupied by the Texas Frontier Regiment Patrols and Scouting Parties frequently sent out kept Indian actions in check and rounded up draft evaders. Always needed were food, clothing, horses, ammunition. These men shared few of the glories of the war, yet at the cost of the lives of not a few of them, these confederate soldiers managed to bring a measure of protection to a vast frontier area. A Memorial to Texans who served the Confederacy, erected by the State of Texas, 1963."
