Bayou City History: The cane that came home

Bayou City History: The cane that came home: I'm glad there's at least some recognition that today is Texas Independence Day, in the newspaper of the city where (close by) the decisive battle was fought. There's this in the San Antonio newspaper; the comments thread includes the obligatory idiot declaring the "terrorist" actions of the rebels not worthy of commemoration. Attention ill-informed cretin: there were Tejanos who supported the Revolution, and Texas was not the only province that rebelled against Santa Anna. Texas, however, won where the others failed.
