(Transcribed by Dorman Holub)
      To record in history the brave and valiant deeds of those who from a consciousness of duty fought for their county's interest, either on the battlefield or otherwise, is the duty of every historian who undertakes to write that person's career.
     The cause for which the Southern States fought involved, as the Texans thought, a principle which aroused them with a spirit of loyalty and devotion to the Confederacy, and into line she stepped with the other States. Dallas county furnished some of the bravest of these Texas soldiers. They were led by seven Confederate colonels, Nicholas H. Darnell, B. Warren Stone, T. C. Hawpe, Nat. M. Burford, John J. Goode, John T. Coit and W. E. Hughes.
 
Sterling Price Camp
     To perpetuate the memory of these ex-Confederates, living and dead, and to preserve and maintain that sentiment of fraternity naturally enkindled in their bosoms for each other, the ex-Confederates of Dallas county, under the leadership of General W. L. Cabell, organized on the 13th day of October, 1889, in the city of Dallas, at the Grand Windsor Hotel, a "camp," naming it after the gallant and beloved Confederate general, Sterling Price.
     The Sterling Price Camp is one of the numerous associations organized under the union of the United Confederate Veterans, which has different departments through the South and is the headquarters of the "Trans-Mississippi Department." The following are the officers:
Lieutenant-General W. L. Cabell, Commanding
Adjutant General and Chief of Staff W. L. Thompson
Assistant Adjutant General, Louisiana General George Moorman
Colonel and Assistant Adjutant General F. B. Trotman
Surgeon-General Dr. S. D. Thruston
Quartermaster-General H. W. Graber
Commissary - General S. P. Mendez
Inspector - General Hugh F. Ewing
Brigadier-General and Chief of Ordnance W. G. Veal
Brigadier General and Aid-de-Camp W.H. Gaston
Inspector- General Hugh F. Ewing
Brigadier General and Aid-de-Camp, Louisiana Charles A. Harris
Brigadier General and Aid-de-Camp, Arkansas John M. Harrell
Brigadier General and Aid-de-Camp, Missouri J. O. Shelby
Brigadier General and Aid-de-Camp, Indian Territory D.N. McIntosh
Brigadier-General and Aid-de-Camp J. T. Harris
Colonel and Aid-de-Camp, Louisiana Paul Conrad
Colonel and Aid-de-Camp, Indian Territory R.B. Coleman
Brigadier-General and Aid-de-Camp and Associate Judge Advocate General A. T. Watts
Chaplain General Dr. A. P. Smith.
 

   Under an order of General W. L. Cabell, of Dallas, calling for the ex-Confederates of the State of Texas, and in fact of all those in the Trans-Mississippi territory, to come together and organize into camps, and all join each other in Dallas in April, 1892, so as to attend in a body the great reunion of all the camp of the ex-Confederacy at New Orleans, Louisiana, April 8, 1892, there was gathered in Dallas an assemblage of old soldiers. An ex-Confederate was a wonder to the citizens of Dallas, and more especially to the generations reared up since the war in which these ex-Confederates fought. To see the old soldiers, some with one arm, some with one leg, some with scarred faces, effects from fights upon the battlefield, and some with no effects visible, all proudly and happily meeting and embracing each other on the streets of the city, was a sight never to be forgotten by those who were present. It is one event in the history of this city that should never be obliterated.

     It was estimated that from 20,000 to 30,000 people, including the ex-Confederates and their friends, assembled here on that occasion - some from the Indian Territory, some from Kansas, and some from Arkansas. The executive committee, composed of Dr. S. D. Thruston, chairman, S. P. Mender, W. H. Gaston, Pat Waltman, W. H. Graber and W. L. Thompson.
