Book Details

Sam Houston is remembered in the name of a major city in the place he loved-Texas. Not only did he defeat Santa Anna's army to free Texas from Mexico, he worked hard to make the Republic of Texas a state and, as the Civil War loomed, to keep it in the Union. He served as president of the Republic of Texas, and then as a senator and governor of the state of Texas. But that's not all. Before Andrew Jackson sent him to Texas, Houston had already been successful as a congressman and governor of Tennessee, and as a self-appointed advocate for the Cherokee Indians. He had fought bravely in the War of 1812 at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Read all about this amazingly practical man who, above all else, heeded his mother's advice to live a life of honor.
