Comanche in Comanche County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
1861 - 1865
— Deo Vindice —
Not for fame or reward, not for place or rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it. For four weary years these brave men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and facing death carried the Banners of the Confederacy. These soldiers offered their lives on the altar of their country's liberty.
Who settled Comanche County
Dear to our hearts must it be evermore,
The jacket of gray our loved soldiers wore,
Can we ever forget when they joined the brave band
that rose in defense of our dear homeland.
Their memories e'er shall remain for us
and their names, bright names,
without stain for us;
The glory they won shall not wane for us,
In legend and lay our heroes in gray
shall forever live over again for us.
