Brooks, known as one of the "Four Great Captains," is standing in the back row (first man at left); Hamer is in the front at right. The two men directly behind Hamer are his brothers. To the right is his brother Harrison L. Hamer who served under Captain W.W. Sterling at Brownsville; to his left is Flavious, who served in Captain W.W. Taylor's company at Del Rio. The photograph was taken on the steps of the State Capitol.
