Spanish Texas

The Birth of Texas Series starts with Spanish Texas. It is the story of the missions, presidios and villas in this most remote part of New Spain. It is Texas Indians, some of whom converted to a life with the Spaniards, and some who most decidedly did not. The settlers in this often hostile outpost would become known as Tejanos, and they would alternately battle and cooperate with the Anglos sneaking into Texas from the east. There are filibusters and pirates, vast Texas ranchos, battles for survival and revolution against Royal Spain.

This is part one of an eight part series of location based videos, called The Birth of Texas Series, that tell the story of Texas from San Felipe de Austin through Revolution, Independence, the Republic and statehood.
