The Texas Revolution: New Perspectives on an Old Topic
Dr. Bruce Winders, historian and curator of the Alamo
Texas did not just happen to revolt on October 2, 1835. Who were the main players, the key events, and chief motivations behind the struggle for Texas's independence? And how are these factors still relevant today, 175 years later? New analysis and research add fresh perspectives on the various historical factors that led up to the revolution — and they're not necessarily what you were taught in school. Join Dr. Bruce Winders, historian and curator of the Alamo, for a compelling discussion on the war’s origins that is sure to offer something new for even the most committed history buff.
