If you are a direct or collateral descendant of a soldier who served in Hood’s Texas Brigade, fill out the attached Application Form (a Microsoft Word document) and process as directed. Your application will be checked against the brigade rosters and upon acceptance you will receive a certificate. Dues are $20 per year.
Definition of Collateral: For the Association, “collateral” is broadly interpreted to include not only brothers of the direct ancestor but also descendants of the siblings of the direct ancestor, i.e. cousins. By this broad interpretation of “collateral” the association hopes to encourage membership and increase its ranks.
If you have a keen interest in the Old Brigade and want to support the Association but do not have an ancestor who fought with the Brigade, you may join as an Associate Member, provided you are sponsored by a current member and are accepted by the Executive Board. Associate Members shall pay annual dues each year, but cannot hold office or vote. To apply, fill out the attached Associate Membership Application Form (a Microsoft Word document).
