New Orleans and the Texas Revolution
Texas A&M University Press, 2004 - 275 pages
One of the least known but most important battles of the Texas Revolution occurred not with arms but with words, not in Texas but in New Orleans. In 1835, Creole mercantile houses backed the forces against Santa Anna. As a result, New Orleans men and arms--two companies known as the New Orleans Greys--were sent to support the upstart Texians in their battle for independence. Miller reconstructs this chain of events, from the disastrous Tampico Expedition to the formation of the New Orleans Greys and their tragic fate at the Alamo and Goliad.
