Confederate States of America, Army, Military Commission:
An Inventory of the Collection, 1862, at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library
This was a military commission appointed in 1862 by General P. O. Hebert to hear cases in San Antonio, Texas, of persons arrested because of Union sympathies, chiefly among German Texans, during the Civil War. Texas served the Confederate States of America during the war between the states.
The collection contains photocopies of hand written proceedings of the Confederate Military Commission (July 2 - October 10, 1862) concerning Union sympathizers in Texas at the beginning of the Civil War. The original papers are held in the Texas State Archive in Austin, Texas.
