1 150th of the Battle of the Nueces on Mon May 21, 2012 12:28 pm

When Texas seceded from the Union, a coalition of German Loyalist’s was confronted with an edict to conscript and send every young man to fight for the Confederate cause or die as traitors. It was decided that all those who could from the pro union counties of Kendall, Kerr, and Gillespie, would ride to Mexico and join the Federal troops. On their journey south they were met and attacked by Confederate forces on the Nueces River which is near the current town of Brackettville in Kinney County.
