About the Book

The revolution ended with a shudder and a gasp, and the antebellum South was dispensed to the dustbins of history. An upended social system intensified this violent, lawless time. Texas government was supervised by the Union Army and its economy shaped by carpetbaggers. Outlaw gangs, freed slaves, Klansmen, and impoverished farmers and planters were all stirred into a volatile stew.

TEXAS WEPT is a tale of love, hate, and human courage.

She was the personal slave of her half sister until June 19, 1865, when Texas slaves learned of their freedom.
