Watch The First Texan
- 1 hr 22 min
One brave soul escaped the stress of living in the colonies, and stepped into a raw land. He was a fighter and a patriot. Once he crossed the Rio into what would eventually be called Texas, his ambition changed to duty. The man's name was Sam Houston. His drive and independence would provide the model for every Texas-loving person after him. Sam Houston was escaping responsibility by moving south, but his reputation is exactly what turned him into an American hero. Houston emerges as a powerful leader against the Mexican army, and a force behind Texan independence.
