    Description

    Texas Confederate Soldier's 1862 Discharge: Thomas B. Crain, later of Waul's Texas Legion and captured at Vicksburg. One page on yellow pre-printed form, 6.25" x 9", printed in Houston, Texas, dated April, 1862. The document has been folded, appears to be slightly trimmed, has a few small stains, minor tears and has an archival repair on the reverse, else very good. This form discharges Crain after serving a six-month stint (November, 1861-April, 1862) in Nichol's Regiment of the Texas Volunteer Infantry. The discharge indicates that Crain mustered out at Galveston, Texas. Included with the lot are two photocopies of period documents that corroborate Crain's service in Waul's Texas Legion and his capture at Vicksburg on July 4, 1863.
