Washington County Civil War History-Gideon Lincecum's Sword

Surnames: Lincecum
For those of you interested in reading background for family history in Washington Co., TX, I recommend Gideon Lincecum's Sword for the Civil War years. It is comprised of excerpts of his extensive correspondence which mention many people in the county and provides a window into the privations and attitudes of the people of the county. The book's index doesn't mention many people cited in the letters however the footnotes of the letters include military records, census citings and newspaper references. These notes cite other interesting sources for deviling more into a particular aspect of the war and life in the county or Texas at the time.
