About The Author
Texas Independence didn’t just happen;
and, it didn’t just happen because some
strangers in far away places fought life
or death battles to earn Texas’ freedom.
Part of Texas history happened right down
in Bastrop County, and Smithville area
heroes did very important things for the
future of Texas and Texans.
This site recognizes four of those early heroes
for their contribitions to Texas.
Have you recognized your local heroes?
