History of the Unit:
The men of the 1st Texas came from East Texas and Harris & Galveston Counties. Arriving piecemeal, all the men of the 1st TX arrived in Richmond, VA, by June 1, 1861, and were commanded by Colonel L. T. Wigfall.
Upon Wigfall's promotion [to Brigade command], Captain A. T. Rainey was voted as Colonel on January 2nd, 1862, P. A. Work as Lt. Colonel. Colonel Rainey was wounded at the Battle of Gaines' Mill [June 1862] and then Lt. Colonel Phillip A. Work was in command of the 1st TX.


In the Antietam Campaign:
Early on the 17th "the Texas Brigade counterattacked Hooker's 1st Corps as they pushed Jackson's men out of the Cornfield and down the Hagerstown Pike toward the Dunker Church. The Texans pressed the Yankees through the cornfield and to the northern edge of it where Anderson's Brigade of Meade's Union division was posted. After several volleys by Anderson's yankees, the 1st Texas fell back through the Cornfield to the West Woods. The 1st Texas left their flag, 8 color-bearers and 186 of their 226 men in the Cornfield. Their 82.6% casualties was the most of any regiment of either side during the War."
(quoted from the 1st Texas site)
