It has been said that Rusk Co. had more men that enlisted in the Civil War than any other county in Texas. The first company that was organized in Rusk Co. was the Boggess company which was put together on Jan. 29, 1861, after the South's secession from the United States. The Texas troops were not required at first, but on April 6, 1861, the Boggess Co. was reorganized.

James Foy had an interesting life... His brother, cousins and in=laws all enlisted in Border's regiment....One went off chasing deserters and stayed until war over....James Foy's and Thomas W.,s father enlisted at 70years with the 2nd cav.
