Thank you for posting this. This is one subject in history where I’m woefully deficient. Incidentally, while researching events that took place in New York during 1835, I kept coming across announcements titled “Meeting in Support of the Texians” in the newspapers of the time. It’s intrigued me, to say the least.

My family was in the Nacogdoches, TX area prior to the revolution, and Texas school children used to be taught about their history and the “Come and Take It” flag, as well as other early rebellions against the Mexican dictatorship of Santa Anna.

Now, these things are swept under the rug to keep from offending people, in the name of political correctness. History should be taught, warts and all. Only that way can we learn about what created this grand country of ours.
