Authorities identified the suspect as Damien "Luke" Anthony Ferguson, 43, and said he should be considered armed and dangerous. A reward of $17,000 was being offered...

    David Hawkins Stern Crockett, fondly remembered as Davy Crockett, was born in eastern Tennessee to pioneer parents on August 17, 1786. Like many settlers of the time, the Crockett family continually pushed West, blazing into new territory (a trend Davy would continue to do with his own family) and by the time Davy was 12, the family had moved three times and was living in western Tennessee. Known as an honest and hardworking boy with a good sense of humor, Davy learned to shoot with his father around age eight and enjoyed joining his older brother on hunting trips. The...

    Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush said Wednesday he filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration claiming its “illegally preventing the border wall from being constructed.” The lawsuit is part of the Texas Defense Task Force, Bush said. It also includes Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. “The issue here is simple—no man is above the law. And that includes President Biden,” Bush said, surrounded by Texas Border Patrol agents and local farmers. “For four years, Congress allocated more than $5 billion to construct fencing and walls around the Southern border.” Bush created the Texas Defense Task Force, he said, to...

    With mere hours to go before a scheduled book event on Thursday, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in downtown Austin removed itself from a discussion on a controversial new book that re-examines the narrative around Texas’ iconic Alamo landmark. “Forget the Alamo: The Rise and Fall of an American Myth,” was released earlier this year and attempts to present the “truth” around what happened at The Alamo and those viewed as heroes for the battle. Especially given a critical eye are Texas’ legends James Bowie and William Barret Travis. Authors Bryan Burrough, Chris Tomlinson and Jason Stanford argue...

    Imagine if the U.S. were to open interior Alaska for colonization and, for whatever reason, thousands of Canadian settlers poured in, establishing their own towns, hockey rinks and Tim Hortons stores. When the U.S. insists they follow American laws and pay American taxes, they refuse. When the government tries to collect taxes, they shoot and kill American soldiers. When law enforcement goes after the killers, the colonists, backed by Canadian financing and mercenaries, take up arms in open revolt.

    The $450 million Alamo revitalization effort remains very real, its centerpiece a new museum to be built around the collection of artifacts and documents that rock star Phil Collins donated to the state in 2014. Everyone involved — George P. Bush, the General Land Office, the city of San Antonio, and the Alamo itself — has a lot riding on this. Finally, they promise, the Alamo will be a “world-class destination.” There’s just one problem. According to a dozen prominent antiquities dealers, collectors, and archaeologists, not to mention the Alamo’s longtime official historian, the Collins collection is not what it’s...

Plaster is flaking off the walls of the nearly 300-year-old former Spanish mission, the most revered battle site in Texas history... ...A $450 million plan to renovate the site has devolved into a five-year brawl over whether to focus narrowly on the 1836 battle or present a fuller view that delves into the site’s Indigenous history and the role of slavery in the Texas Revolution...

Outside Texas this is just another day but in Texas it’s Texas Independence Day. On March 2, 1836, while the 189-odd Texians, Tejanos, and European rebels (and a bunch from Tennessee, however you choose to classify them) were under Santa Anna’s brutal siege at the Alamo, Sam Houston, Lorenzo de Zavala, and other Texas leaders were holed up at Washington-on-the-Brazos. They were hashing out what to do, as...

  • Texas State Historical Assn’s Chief Historian Says the Alamo Was an ‘Insignificant’ Battle and Represents ‘Whiteness.’ What Do Texas History Experts and the Facts Say?

    This past week, Texas State Historical Association chief historian Walter Buenger made two controversial assertions regarding the Alamo in a story published by USA Today. Although the battle has become a symbol of patriotism and freedom for many Texans and Americans, like the Confederate monuments erected after the Civil War, the myth of the Alamo has been used to “commemorate whiteness,” according to Walter L Buenger, Texas State Historical Association chair. The battle itself was relatively insignificant tactically speaking, but it gained recognition decades later in the 1890s as backlash to African Americans gaining more political power and Mexican immigration...
