THE OLD ARMY IN TEXAS
A RESEARCH GUIDE TO THE U.S. ARMY
IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY TEXAS
By Thomas T. Smith
In The Old Army in Texas, U.S. Army officer and histori-
an Thomas "Ty" Smith presents a comprehensive and
authoritative single-source reference for the activities of
the regular army in the Lone Star State during the nine-
teenth century. Beginning with a series of maps that
sketch the evolution of fort loca-
tions on the frontier, Smith fur-
nishes an overview with his intro-
ductory essay, "U.S. Army Combat
Operations in the Indian Wars of
Texas, 1849-1881." Reprinted
from the Southwestern Historical
Quarterly, Smith's essay breaks new
ground in an innovative analysis of ,
the characteristics of army tactical -
methods and the nature of combat
on the Texas frontier, introducing
a unique historical model and
methodology to examine the army and Indian conflicts.
The guide includes an extensive inventory of posts, forts,
and camps, in Texas and gives a year-by-year snapshot of
total army strength in the state. There is also a comprehen-
sive chronological description of U.S. Army combat actions
in the Indian Wars with vivid details of each engagement.
Thomas T. Smith, the author of numerous books and
articles on the Texas frontier, is a regular army lieutenant
colonel assigned to Fort Bliss at El Paso.
