Lone Star Unionism And Dissent Symposium: The Other Civil-War Texas

Saturday, Apr 5 8:00a to 5:00p
The Wittliff Collections San Marcos, TX

Support for the Union in Texas and rejection of the Confederacy did not solely consist of Sam Houston’s famous refusal to take oath of allegiance to the Confederacy. Before, during, and after the Civil War, significant numbers of Texans of all social, economic, and ethnic groups actively opposed the dominant southern slaveocracy for a variety of reasons. This symposium explores the diversity of that opposition and challenges the myth of a monolithic pro-Confederate Texas.
