“Item came as promised, in a timely manner and in great shape. I just started to read it but it looks like a great source of Texas history. Thanks...”
at Texas did not win her independence from Mexico by land battles alone. Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad! But don't forget the Battle of the Brazos, or the likes of Commodore Edwin Ward Moore and Secretary Samuel Rhoads Fisher-each viciously attacked and dragged through the mud by the anti-navy Sam Houston and each a colorful addition to the landscape of Texas history. Through the writings of Samuel Cushing, Cornelius Cox, Alfred Walke, George Fuller and James Mabry, we learn about life on board the naval vessels of the Republic of Texas. Through the speeches and writings in defense of Moore and Fisher, we understand a bit more about the inner workings of the Republic and its leadership. And with the help of contemporary newspaper articles compiled by Lt. William A. Tennison, who served in both Texas Navies, we are afforded a clear chronology of the mighty seafaring branch of the Republic of Texas.
