Released from prison after his capture with Davis, he returned to Texas life and Texas politics, serving as State Treasurer. In this lively, opinionated, sometimes witty memoir, Lubbock mostly discusses his time as War Governor and the struggle to run a state during a rebellion.A largely unreconstructed rebel, Lubbock believed in the Confederate cause to his last days. But his position in Texas history makes him someone worth studying.Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever.For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above or download a sample.
