CONFEDERATE IMAGE OF THE MONTH

Pvt. Japhet Collins, Co. D, 12th Texas Cavalry
Parson's Brigade
(4th Texas Dragoons)
In September 1861 Japhet Collins enlisted
in the 4th Texas Dragoons near Waxahachie. 
Collins is dressed in civilian clothing and 
wears a military-style forage cap. Like the 
other volunteers in his unit, he provided his 
own horse and supplied his own weapons. 
He is equipped with a British-made Bowie 
knife and a Model 1851 Colt "Navy" revolver.
His wartime service was mainly spent in 
Arkansas and Louisiana, and included 
scouting, raiding and stalking draft dodgers. 
Collins participated in numerous battles 
and engagements in the Louisiana bayou 
country. In February 1865 he returned to 
Texas with his regiment. He was paroled 
at Brenham in September 1865. -
