TWENTY-SECOND TEXAS INFANTRY. The Twenty-second Texas Infantry regiment, also known as Hubbard’s regiment, was in service of the Confederate States of America as of August 8, 1862. It comprised men from the Texas counties of Anderson, Angelina, Cherokee, Hopkins, Polk, Quitman, Robertson, Rusk, Smith, Titus, Trinity, Van Zandt, and Wood. The regiment had ten companies lettered A to K. Richard B. Hubbard was promoted from major to colonel when the regiment was formed and took command. The regiment was part of Walker's Texas Division, and its service during the war was completely west of the Mississippi River, primarily in Louisiana and Arkansas. From March 10 to April 10, 1864, the regiment took part in operations against Union Gen. Nathaniel Banks's Red River campaign in Louisiana. The Twenty-second took part in the battle of Mansfield on April 8, 1864, and the battle of Pleasant Hill on April 9, 1864, during that campaign. From April 16 to May 2, 1864, the regiment took part in operations against Union Gen. Frederick Steele's expedition in Arkansas. The Twenty-second took part in the battle of Marks' Mills on April 25, 1864, and the battle of Jenkins' Ferry on April 30, 1864, during that campaign. After defeating Steele's army, the Twenty-second stayed in Arkansas until it was transferred to Shreveport, Louisiana, in the summer of 1864. The regiment was transferred to Hempstead, Texas, in early 1865. Upon returning to Texas most of the men disbanded and went home throughout the month of May 1865. The regiment officially surrendered along with other Confederate Trans-Mississippi troops on June 2, 1865.
