    More Information:

    Mrs. A. V. Winker was the second wife of Clinton McKamy Winkler, a Lt. Colonel in Hood's Texas Brigade. Though married late in the war, she was uniquely situated to produce what Raines called "a well-written story of this famous Texas brigade." Mrs. Winkler, a native of Virginia, also provides an intimate look at Richmond during the war.
