Texas Rifles
The new Confederacy had too much on its hands to send troops to the Texas frontier to hold back the Indians, and authorized Texas to raise its own troops. Many men joined the Texas Mounted Rifles. Some were seeking adventure. Others wanted to protect their families against the murderous Comanche. And some were men who still loved the Union, like Scout Sam Houston Cloud….

Massacre At Goliad
When Josh met Teresa, a beautiful Mexican woman, it was love at first sight. But with the Alamo recently destroyed, he knew this rosebud love was unobtainable. So Josh went with other Texans to protect their land against the Mexicans who have just ravished the Alamo. But what’s at stake? Will he become a war hero, eradicating Mexican control? Or will he follow his heart?
