Unidentified Members of a reuinion of Granbury's Consolidated Texas Brigade

Description: Group picture of fifty unidentified members from Granbury's Consolidated Texas Brigade, most wear ribbons that say Granbury. One member of the brigade who fought in the Army of Tennessee, the man on the second row, second from the left, wears a ribbon that says, J.? T. Grant, Company C, 1?th, Texas. Another man wears a ribbon that possibly says Texas U.C.V (United Confederate Veterans). A man on the third row from the top wears a ribbon that looks like it says Camp Sam Davis. Other men wear reunion badges with the name of the general, the brigade, and the company, while others wear the name of a camp, a flag belonging to their company, or a medal. An unidentified young man sits beside one of the veterans on the front row. A number on the right-hand corner of the photo identifies it as photo 51. The date of the photograph may possibly be 1884, where the reunion was held in Dallas, and ninety-six men showed up; or in 1895, where a reunion was held in Houston, which was attended by many former soldiers of Granbury's brigade [This Band of Heroes, James M. McCaffrey, 1996, p.161].
