Summary

Stephen F. Austin is a man few people have heard about. They may know that the Texas state capital of Austin is named after him, but they don't know why. When people think of Texas, it is the Alamo they think of, the doomed battle bravely fought by Crockett, Bowie, Travis, and others, and of the subsequent heroism of Sam Houston and his army at San Jacinto. Austin isn't mentioned in either of those accounts.
