Download MP3 audio

When you ask ‘Who are the great leaders of the Texas Revolution?’, the names Houston, Austin, Bowie, Crockett, and Travis come to mind right away. But just as important to the birth of Texas are the Tejanos—Texans of Spanish descent—who took up arms against the tyranny of Santa Anna. Today we look at Juan Seguín, José Navarro, and Lorenzo de Zavala, just a few of the Tejano heroes of the Texas Revolution.

Before we begin… What’s your favorite Texan fried food?
