Introduction by Felix Almaraz
It is estimated that 9,500 Mexican-Americans fought in the American Civil War. The conflict in Texas deeply divided the Mexican-Texans. An estimated 2,550 fought in the ranks of the Confederacy while 950, including some Mexican nationals, fought for the Stars and Stripes.
Originally published in 1976, Vaqueros in Blue & Gray is the story of these Mexican-Texans, or Tejanos as they preferred to call themselves, who participated in the Civil War. This new edition contains the first comprehensive list, containing almost 4,000 names, ever compiled on.the Confederate and Union Hispanics from Texas who served in the war.
Vaqueros in Blue & Gray includes the story of the Mexican-Texans who fought in the Union Army and saw action in Louisiana and in the Rio Grande Valley.
It also relates the various battles and skirmishes at Eagle Pass, Laredo, Carrizo (Zapata), Los Patricios, Las Rucias, the final Confederate expedition against Brownsville and the last Battle of the Civil War at Palmito Ranch.
Thus, Vaqueros in Blue and Gray presents a saga of these brave people, their land, and their epic role in the American Civil War.
