Detail - The vital history of New Mexico and Arizona during the formative years between the American Occupation and the coming of the railroad has been compressed by the author into one volume with hundreds of footnotes and many profiles that make this book of vital importance to teachers, students, and researchers. The book is broken into four parts: "General Kearny Comes to Santa Fe," "The Confederates Invade New Mexico," "Carleton's California Column," and "The Long Walk." Many famous men walk and talk through these pages, including Kearny, Doniphan, Baylor, Canby, Carleton, Sibley, and a host of others. In addition, the story of the impact of the Civil War in New Mexico on the Indians, and the tragic results, is told here in detail for the first time. Long out of print, the book is available once again with a new foreword by Marc Simmons and preface by Michael L. Keleher, William A. Keleher's son. It also includes brief biographies of Ernest L. Blumenschein and Oscar E. Berninghaus who provided the original illustrations. William A. Keleher (1886-1972) observed first hand the changing circumstances of people and places of New Mexico. Born in Lawrence, Kansas, he arrived in Albuquerque two years later, with his parents and two older brothers. The older brothers died of diphtheria within a few weeks of their arrival. As an adult, Keleher worked for more than four years as a Morse operator, and later as a reporter on New Mexico newspapers. Bidding a reluctant farewell to newspaper work, Keleher studied law at Washington & Lee University and started practicing law in 1915. He was recognized as a successful attorney, being honored by the New Mexico State Bar as one of the outstanding Attorneys of the Twentieth Century. One quickly observes from his writings, and writings about him, that he lived a fruitful and exemplary life. His knowledge and understanding of humankind is evidenced by this quote attributed to Sir Thomas Browne, 1686, and printed after the title page in "Turmoil in New Mexico" "The iniquity of oblivion scattereth her poppy and deals with the memory of men without distinction to merit and perpetuity.who knows whether the best of men be known, or whether there be not more remarkable men forgot, than any that stand remembered in the known account of time."

Detail - “An accurate and absorbing account of all the Civil War campaigns in which any Texas organizations participated - such famous units as Hood’s Texas Brigade, Walker’s Division, Terry’s Texas Rangers and Sibley’s Arizona Brigades, as well as many little-known ones. Texas troops fought in every theater of the Civil War outside the state, and at home had problems to contend with that most of the other states didn’t have; a long coastline and a long frontier had to be guarded, one from the federals and the other from the Indians. The most brilliant operation fought, says Colonel Henderson, was the battle of Sabine Pass, September 8, 1863. The young lieutenant Dick Dowling and a company of 44 Irish guards successfully defended against an invasion attempt at the mouth of the Sabine River by a force of 5000 union soldiers. A full account of this engagement in the terms of a professional soldier is given under the “1st Heavy Artillery Regiment” chapter. One of the most daring plans of the South, aimed at seizing the entire Southwest to the California coast, was the invasion of New Mexico by a brigade of Texans under Harry Hopkins Sibley. The little-known story of this brigade and the battles it fought in the arid territory along the Rio Grande in New Mexico are told in the intensely human chapter on “Sibley’s Arizona Brigade”. TEXAS IN THE CONFEDERACY is doubly valuable for bringing together all the organizations into one handy book, and for creating through this compilation a stirring story of patriotism, bravery, humor and action that will be a source of pride for every Texan and of exciting reading for all.”-Print ed.
