While the battles of 1836 -- the Alamo, Goliad, and San Jacinto -- are well-known moments in the Texas Revolution, the battle for Bexar in the fall of 1834 is often overlooked.

Fannin. Newspaper clipping pasted to reverse of ffep and another laid in. Also laid in is a Christmas Card from Garry Mauro, Texas Land Commissioner for 1993 depicting a map of Aransas county in 1883 with some historical notes on the back. DJ rubbed at extremities.

Banner state for the Ku Klux Klan, fertile soil for both old-style demagoguery and business progressivism, battleground for bone-dry prohibitionists against wets, Texas in the 1920s played a pivotal role in the politics of the nation. National issues and local factionalism created a complex web that gave Texas, according to a 1928 New York Times editorial, "an importance...out of proportion to the size of its vote or the State's geographical and industrial significance", which shows an ignorance of Texas. 35 pictures.
