López: The SBOE — A Texas Stonewall
from Rio Grande Guardian
"The Anglo Americans who came to Texas with Stephen F. Austin were not in the true sense pioneers; they found not a wilderness but a society already in existence..." These words were written by Historian John Francis Bannon in his book, "The Spanish Frontier in America, 1513-1821." Author Bannon is referring to the unique Tejano mystique. Truly, Tejano society lured Anglos both legally and illegally to immigrate to Mexico; abandoning the U.S. to start life anew in México. Nevertheless, those same U.S. immigrants betrayed their host country of México shortly after arriving.
