Tour of Texas History #1 - Anahuac and Wallisville

On May 9, 2009, a day trip is planned to visit Wallisville and Anahuac, scenes of events that precipitated the Texas Revolution. Stopping at the Wallisville Museum, the group will hear historian Kevin Ladd discuss the Turtle Bayou Declaration, then on to Old Fort Anahuac to hear a talk about the Anahuac Disturbances of the 1830s, the arrest of Patrick Jack and his law partner, William Travis and events in that area that led to the Revolution. The group will travel to the antebellum home of General T. J. Chambers to learn about Chambers’ role in the early Mexican government of Tejas y Coahilia.

The group will leave at 9 a.m. from The First Baptist Church of The Woodlands, 11801 Grogans Mill Road. Bring a sack lunch and drinks; we will stop at a designated park for lunch. The trip is tightly scheduled with much information to be gleaned in a day! Come prepared to walk.
