Texas Heritage Society Members Participate in DRT Convention Program

2010 DRT Convention

The Texas Heritage Society was well represented at the 2010 Annual Convention of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas held this year in Houston.  Pat Spackey, THS Publicity Chair, had organized a program saluting the Lone Star Flag of Texas and Dr. Charles B. Stewart. With more than 600 DRT members in attendance, THS members, David Martin and Kameron Searle, put on the program with the help of the "Texas Flag Man," Tom Green.  All three gentlemen were wearing 1836 period attire for their presentation.

While Searle discussed the many accomplishments of Texas founding-father Charles B. Stewart, David Martin and Tom Green paraded each of the flags of Texas whose design included a single lone star prior Stewart's world famous design in 1839.  Tom Green then gave a short history of each of the earlier "single-starred" flags of Texas and David Martin discussed his recent historical research regarding Charles B. Stewart's Lone Star flag.  Martin concluded the program to a thunderous round of applause when he described the Texas Lone Star flag as "the most beautiful flag in the world."
