In response "to the call of the Governor for fourteen regiments," Dashiell issued this order, noting that "two more camps of instruction will be established; one on the Bosque river, near Waco, and the other on the Leon river, west of San Antonio." The order goes on to assign the fourteen regiments as follows: "At Houston, Austin and Hempstead, three regiments each; at Waco, two regiments; at Tyler, Victoria and San Antonio, one regiment each."
