An almost day-by-day account of the revolution of 1835-36 that wrested the northern province of Mexico known as Tejas away from that country and created the Republic of Texas. Maps and illustrations give the reader a better understanding of the people and locations involved, while biographies of some of the famous and lesser-known people who participated in the Texas Revolution round out the overall picture of the historic events that took place.
