Roll of
Original Members
Co H 4th Texas Regt. Hoods Brigade
Army of Northern Virginia

(Transcription from personal files of Frank B. Chilton at the Texas State Archives. NOTE: Corrections to this roll are included in the letter from H. T. Sapp and F. B. Chilton to Capt. J. T. Hunter, 12 February 1905.)

Carefully kept by Thomas Seargent through entire war with notes as to fate of each man appended by him as occasion offered. Thomas Seargent was a gallant member of the Company who survived the war and died with yellow fever at Galveston in 1867.

This roll kept by him was sent to office of Adjutant General at Austin, Texas, to remain on file among State Archives as a memorial to one of the grandest Companies of brave men that ever went out to die for home, country, and principle. The cause for which they fought was lost but the principle and evidence of their courage and devotion will live forever, and go ringing through all the times and changes of coming ages. They were silenced only when there was hardly a man left to wave the tattered flag they loved so well. Today there are but few of that old company of Lees army to remember and treasure the names and exploits of their dear comrades but those few are deeply grateful to Comrade Thos. Seargent for the following roll of the original company, prepared by him.


Roll as left by Thos. Seargent and sent to Adjutant Generals office at Austin, Texas, by his brother Jas. B. Seargent, August 3rd, 1904.
