Freed at the beginning of the war, he choose to become a soldier in Company I of the 9th Texas Cavalry of the Confederate Army seeing combat in such battles as Green River Bridge, luka, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Shiloh. After the war he shot and killed a white Union officer who attacked his former master. After fleeing to the Weatherford area of Texas he became a race horse trainer and later a cowboy working on Sullivan Ross’ ranch in Central Texas. He became famous as the greatest bear hunter in history-killing more bear than Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone combined. He guided bear hunts for some of the most prominent men of his era including President Theodore Roosevelt. At one time he was a deputy sheriff involved in several shootouts. Holt is the only black man to have a National Wildlife Refuge name in his honor.
