The Birth Of Texas Documentary Series
A Project of The Heritage Society and Houston Arts and Media
The Birth of Texas is a multi-part series of feature length documentaries that chronicle the journey from Spanish Texas, along the road to Revolution, through the days of the Republic and on to statehood. The videos not only explore the complete stories of the famous military actions at the Alamo, Goliad and San Jacinto including recent breakthroughs in scholarship and archaeology, but also the roles played by Tejanos, American settlers, filibusterers, enslaved African-Americans, European immigrants and foreign governments in shaping the story of our state.
Noted author and historian, Stephen Hardin, leads a tour of locations that serves as the backbone of this documentary series. Interviews with other scholars, snippets of contemporary journals, photographs, maps, music and graphics makes this an engaging way to learn about the beginnings of Texas.
