Texas’ Historical Milestones On This Day November 28th

November 28th in 1884, a charter was issued for the John B. Hood Camp of United Confederate Veterans, which served as a residence for impoverished and disabled Confederate veterans. This home opened in 1866 and provided much-needed support for those who had fought in the Civil War.

In 1933, a Dallas grand jury delivered a murder indictment against Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow for the killing of Tarrant County Deputy Malcom Davis. This infamous pair of outlaws became notorious for their crime spree and were the subject of many news stories and legends.

Another important event on this day in Texas history was the formation of the Texas State Genealogical Society in 1960. This organization was created to generate interest in local history and to conserve genealogical and historical research materials. Their work has helped to preserve the rich history of Texas for future generations.
