Death on the Nueces

by Underwood, Rodman L.
Publisher: Eakin Press
Issue: Winter 2001
ISBN: 1571683038

Part historical account, part sociological meditation, Death on the Nueces examines the unionist sympathies of the German immigrants who populated the Hill Country of Central Texas. In 1862, at least 36 were killed in combat with Confederate forces, and others were hanged for treason. Rodman L. Underwood argues that tension between Anglo-Texan culture and the "freethinking" German-Texan temperament was at the core of the conflict.
