America’s Forgotten First War for Slavery and Genesis of The Alamo Volume II By Phillip Thomas Tucker
Paperback: $20.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
In Volume II of this ground-breaking series, Phillip Thomas Tucker, Ph.D., has presented a “new look” at the Texas Revolution of 1835-1836 without the traditional romance and myths.... More > Mexico made the mistake of allowing American immigrants to settle in Texas. Mostly from the South, they created an unprecedented economic prosperity based on slavery and cotton cultivation. However, these developments set the stage for open warfare between the largely pro-slavery settlers and the Republic of Mexico, which had abolished slavery in 1829. Because of the massive support from the U.S. to the Texas rebels who fought to preserve the Southern way of life and slavery, the Texas Revolution was actually America's first war for slavery. With this revealing new perspective, Tucker's historical analysis has given us an insightful understanding of a war that altered the destinies of two neighboring republics. For the first time, Tucker has revealed the hidden secrets and forgotten truths of the Texas Revolution.< Less

Merriam Press Military History Series. The military history of the United States is much maligned in the minds of far too many Americans these days and unfortunately so is much of history in general.... More > The object of this work is to focus on the military history of our nation from its earliest beginnings to the end of the American Civil War. Military history of the United States does not mean only organized armies. From the time of Spanish exploration of North America there have been conflicts that required a response that was military in some sense. The first conflicts in North America involved the Native American Indians against small groups or individuals, not armies, but that would change as this nation grew in population. Countries like France and Great Britain would send their military troops to these shores for territorial gains changing the scope to full military involvement. The stage was set for the beginning of the United States Military! Profusely illustrated.< Less
