The Twentieth Texas Infantry was comprised mainly of middle-aged men and commanded by Colonel Henry M. Elmore. It was part of the District of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, also known as the Third Corps under General John B. Magruder. Their main purpose was to guard the Sabine River and to protect the city of Galveston, Texas. They saw little action until the Battle of Galveston in January of 1863, in which they served with distinction for which their action were commended by Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
If you have further information on my Great Great Grandfather or know where he is buried, please email me so that I may make additions or corrections and place his memorial in the proper cemetery. At this time, I am placing his memorial at the Locklin Cemetery where his wife, Nancy, was interred.
Thank you!
