Confederate Private Japhet Collins

In September 1861 Japhet Collins enlisted
in the 4th Texas Dragoons near Waxahachie.
Collins is dressed in civilian clothing and
wears a military-style forage cap. Like the
other volunteers in his unit, he provided his
own horse and supplied his own weapons.
He is equipped with a British-made Bowie
knife and a Model 1851 Colt "Navy" revolver.
His wartime service was mainly spent in
Arkansas and Louisiana, and included
scouting, raiding and stalking draft dodgers.
Collins participated in numerous battles
and engagements in the Louisiana bayou
country. In February 1865 he returned to
Texas with his regiment. He was paroled
at Brenham in September 1865. -
