Agency History

On November 13, 1835, the Consultation created the Office of Adjutant General as one of five heads of departments under the commander-in-chief of the Texian Army (the other offices being inspector general, quartermaster general, surgeon general, and paymaster seneral). On December 20, 1836, the 1st Congress passed "an Act to organize and fix the Military establishment of the Republic of Texas," which in addition to the aforementioned bureaus, created a commissary general of subsistence, a commissary general of purchases, and a colonel of ordnance, all of whom answered to the Secretary of War. On December 18, 1837, Congress passed—and later passed again over President Sam Houston's veto—an act making the adjutant general a position elected by the congress; the first man so elected was Hugh McLeod. This arrangement lasted less than two years, however, with subsequent adjutant generals—beginning with McLeod on January 30, 1839—being appointed by the president. Congress combined the offices of adjutant general and inspector general on January 28, 1840, and technically abolished this position on January 18, 1841. However, Peter Hansborough Bell served as adjutant general of militia soon thereafter; and in legislation of February 1842, there is a reference to an acting adjutant general.

The Texas Navy at first operated under a separate Secretary of the Navy, appointed by the President as authorized by an act of Congress approved October 25, 1836. On January 18, 1841, Congress abolished this office and created a naval bureau under the Secretary of War and Marines. The end of the Republic in 1846 meant the end of the Texas Navy as well.

Whereas under the Republic the Adjutant General was subservient to the Secretary of War, under statehood the position was elevated to that of head of all military departments. After annexation, the 1st Legislature provided for an adjutant general to be appointed by the governor, in "an Act to organize the Militia of the State of Texas" (April 21, 1846). The duties which fell to the adjutant general included the issuance of all military orders; the maintenance of records of appointments, promotions, resignations, deaths, commissions, etc.; the receipt of monthly and annual returns; and muster rolls from the various military units; the keeping of the records of general courts martial; recruitment and enrollment of Rangers and militiamen; and now, the issuing of all bounty and donation land warrants on the basis of military service to the Republic. This last duty was assumed by the commissioner of claims, pursuant to an Act of the legislature passed August 1, 1856; the office of the adjutant general had been the victim of apparent arson in October 1855, allegedly by persons engaged in land certificate fraud. The position of adjutant general was itself reestablished by the Militia Law of February 14, 1860, by which act he also assumed the duties of quartermaster general and ordnance officer of the state.

The Civil War brought a reorganization of the office with the act of December 25, 1861, that created an adjutant and inspector general, who would also serve as quartermaster, commissary general, and ordnance officer. Oversight of the 33 Brigades of the Texas State Troops plus the Frontier Regiment fell to this office, just as later adjutant generals would split their time between the Militia and the Rangers (whatever the prevailing terminology). The demands of the Confederate States Army, often conflicting with the needs and desires of the State of Texas, would affect the entire period of the war.

During the congressional phase of Reconstruction, the military affairs of the State of Texas, and many aspects of civil government, were controlled by the commander of the District of Texas (1866-1868), or of the 5th Military District (1868-1870). Within months of Texas' readmission to the Union under Radical Republican Governor Edmund J. Davis (1870), the Legislature created the Frontier Forces (June 13), the State Guard and Reserve Militia (June 24), and the State Police (July 1), all of which were commanded by a newly restored state adjutant general. On November 25, 1871, the Legislature added a fifth organization, the Minute Men. The first adjutant general so appointed, James Davidson, absconded with over $37,000 of state funds in 1872. The State Guard and Reserve Militia were merged into a simple state militia on March 19, 1873, and the State Police force was abolished April 22, 1873.

The place of the Frontier Forces was taken in 1873 and 1874 by the Rangers and the Frontier Men, and finally by the Frontier Battalion, organized by an act passed April 10, 1874. The Texas Volunteer Guard was rising in prominence during these same years. On July 22, 1876, "an Act to suppress lawlessness and crime in certain parts of the state" authorized the creation of the Special State Troops, commanded first by Captain Leander McNelly and subsequently by Captain J. L. Hall. In the last year of the operation of this Special Force (1880-1881), it was commanded by Captain Thomas L. Oglesby.

The Spanish-American War (1898) saw the nationalization of the Texas Volunteer Guard, which was organized into four regiments of infantry and one of cavalry, and designated the Texas Volunteers. After the war they were de-nationalized, and reorganized on April 1, 1903 as the Texas National Guard. On August 5, 1917, the Texas National Guard was drafted into federal service, forming the 36th Division, which was to be mobilized during World War II as well.

The Frontier Battalion was reorganized as the Ranger Force by an act of the Legislature on March 29, 1901. From time to time this regular force was supplemented by specially commissioned Special Rangers, Railroad Rangers, Cattlemen's Association Rangers, and Loyalty Rangers. Finally, on August 10, 1935, the Ranger Force was transferred to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

They do not, however, represent all of the persons who have served in these organizations.

Within each military organization, files are arranged alphabetically by the name of the person. There is an alphabetical union list that gives the name of the individual, the two- or three-letter code indicating the military organization, and the box number. This union list is available in two binders in the State Archives' search room.

Army of the Republic service records, 1836-1845,
6 cubic ft.

The Texas Adjutant General's Department created and maintained records that have served as proof of the service of specific individuals in the Army of the Republic of Texas. These records consist of enlistment and discharge papers, plus affidavits of service, pay and claim vouchers. They comprise the service records of the Army of the Republic, 1836-1845. There are approximately 1,368 documents. A typical enlistment record contains the following information: city and date, name of the enlistee, place of birth, age, height, complexion, color of eyes and hair, profession, and term of enlistment. After an oath "that I will bear true Faith and Allegiance to the Republic of Texas, and that I will serve her faithfully and honestly against all her Enemies and Opposers whomsover; and that I will observe and obey the Orders of the President of the Republic of Texas, and the Orders of the Officers appointed over me, according to the Rules and Articles of War" is the signature of the enlistee and of the official taking the oath.
Historical Note
