Being a native Texan; growing-up in Texas, I can say our history as a state is very, very dear. That said, I watch it eroded annually by the p.c. police.

I recall a few years back people stating the recreation event for the battle of San Jacinto was "too violent" (Done anually). The nay sayers got shut down like a garage door. And what a petty argument that was...

Personally, I'm honored to be Texan and didn't realize "Texas" means more than I thought as I began to travel.
At the low point of U.S. standing in the minds of international thoughts, I was mostly abroad, people disliked the United States in general, but if I mentioned I am from Texas, they would open wide-up and suddenly I was a long lost brother and talk for hours. "You are not from the U.S., you are from Texas"

There is a constantly a faction wanting to change our history via verbiage or actions.

Ain't gonna happen

Question: was Christopher Columbus a hero or a villain?

How about Abraham Lincoln? Hero or villain?

Robert E. Lee? Ulysses S. Grant? General Custer? Crazy Horse? Sitting Bull?

Who were the heroes and who were the villains in our history?

Would we all agree?

With the current climate, would McCarthy be considered a hero now?

Don’t know. Maybe it is best not to use subjective terms like hero or villain, and just state objectively what happened.

a reply to: kaylaluv Even if you disagree with someone,you should honor them if they are heroic and brave.Custer wouldn`t make my list,of those you mentioned,he was just a insane idiot.All of the ,rest,yes,absolutely.Some would deny Lee because he fought on the PC wrong side,but he was a honorable man,and in the end surrendered to Grant rather than break his army up and fight a guerilla war that would have lasted for many more years.And who could call Tecumseh,for example,anything but heroic?Or Geronimo?They were enemies of the US,but still admired,even by their sworn enemies.Erasing history and not acknowledging how their people felt about them is too much like Nazi book burning for comfort.

It would seem those deciding about what goes in a curriculum have issues with word definitions and understanding what a word means.

"he·ro·ic
həˈrōik/Submit
adjective
1.
having the characteristics of a hero or heroine; very brave.
"heroic deeds"
synonyms: brave, courageous, valiant, valorous, lionhearted, superhuman, intrepid, bold, fearless, daring, audacious;"

You can be the most evil SOB ever to walk the planet Earth and still be heroic. I think they need to invest in a dictionary.

Well, why not. This is the same group of 'educators' that removed certain things from El Paso, Texas text books that were offensive to the Mexican government. Such as a Goliad Massacre and the Meir Expedition Massacre.

Liberal educators are nothing but communist indoctrinators...

Where was that reasoning when Caitlyn Jenner was praised as a hero?

As a sixth generation Texan, I unfortunately agree. I'll bet San Antonio is over 50% Mexican, not Mexican-American or American of Mexican decent...but illegal Mexican. The illegals are everywhere. Something has to be done...

Stop all aid to Mexico till they close their border to drugs and illegals from all countries...

Maybe you should move.
San Antonio is one of the greatest cities in the state. Outstanding history, outstanding restaurants, outstanding people. How does any part of the society being illegals affect your daily life?
Be specific please

Historical fact:
Texas belonged to Mexico. Mexico had every right to try and squash the uprising and challenge to it's authority. And so they did, and lost. The white Eroupean settlers, indian and many Mexicans wanted independence from Mexico, for many different reasons.
Mexicans and Indians (not in great numbers) died at the Alamo along with the "imperialistic" [sarc] white man.
Historically speaking? It was a military blunder, considering the times and arms, a needless and senseless battle. But no less, heroic.
It's probably the first time in history the U.S. interfered with a foreign war.
Texas did not become a US. State even after the war evenswith US. Military help. It bacame a independent, sovereign country.
The history of Texas is not unlike the American States war for Independence from the British crown.

The problem with modern "educators" is? They're not interested in TRUTH. Even sadder, they're put in a position of
"High Status" to warp truth in young developing minds to hate themselves and their countries history. It's part of the "curriculum" of obedience and servitude/serfdom.

How dare them Texans, Southern States, Founding fathers!??!!

History is not the problem. It's who we are allowing to teach it. That's the problem.

Also historically speaking: The United States could've taken/owned Mexico a couple times. But we didn't keep it, we gave it back. Probably a good reason for that. Another historical fact the U.S. Marines have "..halls of Montezuma.. In their "hymn". They (Marines) were brought along with the US Army to guard the supply elements. The engagement was already over and had been won, before the Marines even fired a shot. This account is in the Library of Congress, in the official "report of actions" by the Army field commander.
History is written by the victor. And those/them that can get away with it.
It is very important for people to defend truth.

Antony Sutton said decades ago that Skull and Bones controlled the American Historical Society and that they actively engaged in revisionist history. Dinesh DSouza told us that the Communist Howard Zinn is revising history through the lens of communism which engages in race and class warfare.
