Confederate Post at Marshall, Texas

My ancestor, Col. Squire Boone, was a field officer in the 15th Arkansas Infantry, Confederate States of America. He was wounded in battle and captured twice. After being exchanged following Vicksburg in July of 1863, according to his obituary, he was "given charge of the Confederate Post at Marshall, Texas from mid-1863 until the end of the war."
He returned to his home at Ozark, Arkansas and died there on July 20, 1873, age 42. I would like to learn about this Confederate Post at Marshall, Texas; if any photos of it survive; and perhaps if there might be a photo of Col. Squire Boone, since he was apparently in charge of that post.
