"The twelve companies that composed the First Texas Infantry may be said to have straggled to Virginia, where, in the early months of 1861, it was believed the one decisive battle ot the war would be fought. They went singly, in couples, and in triplets; but although all arrived in Richmond by June 1, 1861, they were not ordered to the front until July 21, the day the first battle on the fields of Manassas was fought, and so did not reach the Southern army in time to take part in that engagement."
