Notable leaders from Texas


A number of notable leaders were associated with Texas during the Civil War. John Bell Hood* gained fame as the commander of the Texas Brigade in the Army of Northern Virginia and played a prominent role as an army commander late in the war. "Sol" Ross was a significant leader in a number of Trans-Mississippi Confederate armies. John Henninger Reagan* was an influential member of Jefferson Davis's* cabinet.

The office of Governor of Texas was in flux throughout the war, with several men in power at various times. Sam Houston* was governor when Texas seceded from the United States, but refused to declare any loyalty to the new Confederacy. He was replaced by Lieutenant Governor Edward Clark. Clark filled the rest of Houston's term in 1861, and narrowly lost re-election by just 124 votes to Francis Lubbock. During his tenure, Francis Lubbock supported Confederate conscription, working to draft all able-bodied men, including resident aliens, and his own brother, Thomas Saltus Lubbock* , - a Confederate Colonel and Texas Ranger, into the Confederate Army. When Francis Lubbock's term ended in 1863, he joined the military. Ardent secessionist Pendleton Murrah replaced him in office. Even after Robert E. Lee* surrendered in 1865, Murrah encouraged Texans to continue the revolution, and he and several supporters fled to Mexico.
