ALIR - Introduction to Texas History

this class will share a sharply-focused discussion of life in "Mexican Texas" between 1831 and 1836, starting with the migration of pioneers from the United States; continuing with politics in the settlements, events leading to the Battle of the Alamo, and a glimpse of the Runaway Scrape; and ending with Texas as a Republic. The instructor has based the class on archival documents and will present this remarkable snapshot of Texas history from a first-families' perspective.
