Chaplain Davis and Hood's Texas Brigade, edited by Donald E. Everett, is
once again in print. Ordained a Presbyterian minister in the late 1840s,
Nicholas A. Davis joined the Fourth Regiment of Texas Volunteers as
chaplain in 1861. Soon after, the unit moved to Virginia, where it
fought in the Seven Days' Campaign, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, and
Fredericksburg. Davis wrote his memoir two years into battle, drawing
upon keen observational skills and a diary he kept faithfully. Originally
published in 1863 and expanded by Donald Everett in 1962, Chaplain
Davis and Hood's Texas Brigade has won acclaim from both scholars and
enthusiasts. With a new foreword by Robert Krick, the book is available
for $14.95, paper, from Louisiana State University Press, P.O. Box
25053, Baton Rouge, La. 70894-5053.
TCU Press, in cooperation with Texas Wesleyan University School of
Law, has reprinted a significant work on the early history of Fort Worth,
J. C. Terrell's Reminiscences of Early Days in Fort Worth. It is the only eyewit-
ness account of events in the city immediately following Fort Worth's
founding as an army fort in 1849 and its transfer to civilian status in
1853. In 1856, J. C. Terrell, a young lawyer in his twenties, stepped off a
stagecoach in Fort Worth while traveling to California. He ran into an
old classmate, Dabney C. Dade, who convinced him to establish a prac-
tice in Fort Worth instead. In 1906, Terrell wrote down his memories of
those early days. His choice of subject matter was eclectic. He wrote of
important settlers-E. M. Daggett and M. T. Johnson-and killing hogs,
patriotism in the schools, and a Confederate reunion. His writing clearly
reflects the characteristics of a frontier town at the turn of the century.
The book is $9.95, cloth. To order, contact Texas A&M University Press
