History Under the Star Lecture – The First Texas Revolution: Tejanos and the Mexican War of Independence

Texas Historical Commission Uploaded by San Jacinto Battleground
The Texas Revolution of 1835-1836 was not the first time the people of Texas had revolted. Twenty-three years earlier, the Gutierrez-Magee Expedition ended in the Battle of Medina near San Antonio. This battle and the brutal punishment of its participants fundamentally shaped Tejanos during the Mexican period and sheds lights on their behavior when Revolution broke out again in October of 1835. Join us on Saturday, September 24, from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for our History Under the Star lecture series, “The First Texas Revolution: Tejanos and the Mexican War of Independence” with Dr. Jesús "Frank" de la Teja.
