In February 1861, the Confederacy sent commissioners to convince the commander of the U.S. troops in Texas, General David Twiggs, to surrender. As Twiggs, from Georgia, was a southern sympathizer, they had little trouble in so persuading him. On February 16th, 1861, he surrendered his troops to a Confederate force under Ben McCulloch. $35
