BASIC 96(A) "Touch more aspects of American and state political history than do the papers of any of Houston's great Texan contemporaries...indispensable reference tool for the study of Southwestern and United States history." -Herbert Gambrell; No research into any facet of Texas history between 1830 and 1860 would be complete without utilization of this work. Barker's annotations are an outstanding contribution to the usefulness of the work, and include hundreds of biographical sketches, many of which were left out of the subsequent Handbook of Texas.
