Novel. William Lee Braden was no secessionist, no slave owner. In fact, when the polls opened in Jacksboro, Texas, in 1861, Braden rode twelve miles up Lost Creek from his small ranch not only to vote against secession, but on his ballot, right next to his signature, he wrote For the Union forever. However in 1861, he rode off to join his brother to defend Texas against raiders.
