    I was looking for an online source for a Culpeper flag (to compare prices with local stores) and ran across the following piece of information. I wasn't familiar with the story and I thought that it might be of interest to other THR members as well.


    A picture of the banner can be found here.

    Excellent. As a transplant I wasn't aware of that. I'll be brushing up on my Lone Star history.

    No secret in Texas. The city of Gonzales has a webpage and the canon is prominent in their history. I am surprised that you didn't know this since people from Tn are highly regarded in Tx. After all, that is where Texans came from.

    Actually, I am a transplant to TN. Hence the screen name. Still, I'd be surprised if many Tennesseans knew the story (which would be too bad because it is definitely worth knowing!).
