Camp West of the Mississippi

Henry Hopkins Sibley
The General Who Would Conquer the
American West for the Confederacy
By William J. Sibley 18
Called a "model misfit in war" Confederate
General Henry Hopkins Sibley
achieved considerable, though perhaps
dubious notoriety, as an inventor and
soldier. A young Texas writer takes a
look at his curious ancestor.
An Example of Daring
By Edward B. Williams 8
Considered one of the South's most revered
and feared fighting units, John B.
Hood's Texas Brigade played an instrumental
role in almost every campaign of
the Army of Northern Virginia from 1862
until Appomattox. The heroic valor and
self-sacrificing conduct of the men who
fought with the Brigade is unequalled.
