MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TEXAS CSA by Frank M. Johnson - Book Review
In recent years, there has been a rebirth in the study of the history of Montgomery County. This rebirth has seen a new generation of historians who rely almost entirely on primary sources rather than stale and often inaccurate secondary sources. What these historians in recent years have produced are far more accurate and useful histories. Montgomery, County, Texas CSA is the most recent contribution by one of these new historians. As such, Montgomery County, Texas CSA is destined to become the historical authority on this period in Montgomery County's history for many years to come. Genealogists seeking sources of information about Montgomery County will also find this volume an essential tool as hundreds of names are listed with information about the military regiments in which these men fought during the war.
Frank M. Johnson describes his book most succinctly as "A definitive history of Montgomery County's involvement in the War Between the States and the men from that county who served in the military of the Confederate States of America." Montgomery County, Texas CSA is 227 pages and is available from Frank M. Johnson or Amazon. com.
