The state of Texas was struggling because goods became scarce and very expensive. They had to grow less cotton and more crops just the feed the army.
In 1861 Francis Lubbock was elected governor, and he worked really hard to improve the military.
When his term ended in 1863 he joined the Confederate army as a lieutenant colonel.
There were not enough men that volunteered for the army, so they had to make a draft, forcing certain people to join the confederate army.
People with certain jobs were exempt from serving, and sometimes people could pay their way out, but Lubbock strongly disagreed with job exemptions.
Even after the draft the Confederacy still struggled to put enough soldiers on the field.
