Texas History Lesson


Whenever I go to museums, I am most interested in the fabric and clothes of the times. Here is a wonderful quilt that dates back to the 1800's Texas pioneer times. I saw it when we visited the San Jacinto museum at the battle ground site where General Houston retaliated against the Mexican army. (Soon after the battle at the Alamo.) As a result of the Battle of San Jacinto, almost a third of what is now the United States of America changed ownership. The battle lasted only 18 minutes. OK, there's your history lesson for today!
