Sam Houston and his army surround and capture Santa Ana and what was left of his army. Too bad they allowed him to return to Mexico in one piece. That in an of itself caused the federal government to go to war in 1846 and seize all of southwestern areas now known as New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and all of California. Death to the Mexicans. Remember Goliad, Remember the Alamo.

Sam Houston was a hell of a man and a leader. He favored the Colt pistol as a peacemaker because of it's accuracy. He wasn't one to take any guff off of anyone either. We need another leader like him in these trying times.

Sammy was a Mexican so really it still belongs to Mexico. He was never stripped of his citizenship or renounced it. It was held up in the worlds court. Maybe when China is the worlds police they will draw the lines to pre mayflower times

Fool Sam Houston never gave up his American Citizenship and then he also took on the citizenship of the Republic of Texas from 1836 to 1845. May you mestizo parents hit you in the back of the head D'nozo.

I think they named a college after Houston so he couldn't have been all bad. Lots of great fighters are treacherous and ferocious in battle but once they get home, they're nice and gentle. Does anyone know if he had a wife?

I see you know nothing about Texas or Mexican History. Your simple mind tries to simplify everything and compartmentalize it into your narrow, tiny brain. That's ok, as long as we know who you are and what you are.

I'll bet the farm that you never read "With Santa Ana in Texas," by Lt. Col. Enrique de la Pena, or the story of his life after the war. Only historians do deep research and first-hand accounts of battles and wars. I'll bet you don't even know what a Sapper Battalion is, which will point up your military illiteracy.

Dis you know that Sam Houston was a runaway child who was raised by a Cherokee chief? Or that Houston learned battlefield tactics as a Cherokee warrior fighting against their mortal enemies, the Creeks?

Did you know that John Chisum, a figure of the Lincoln County War had a black wife? Did you know that the couple are buried in the family plot, along with some children, in Paris, TX?

Did you know that the "Rebel Yell" of the Confederates was learned from the Coushatta Indian War Whoop at the Battle of San Jacinto? Houston spoke several Indian languages and was good at recruiting Indian allies.

History is interesting. All you have to do is be an independent researcher and not read the politically correct versions meted out to high schools and universities.

He knows more GD history than anyone in here as he proved with the recent letter to the editor he wrote about it. Have you ever been published in the Times? He has on multiple occasions and you have to be pretty important to achieve that. He was also the only one who swore that Hillary would testify about Benghazi after she was laid up and he's the only one with the guts in here to point out that the GM bailout was paid in full. He also knows the truth about how FDR was afraid of the Jews. You need to treat him with some respect and honor and not with your flippant, condescending attitude. He was in the Navy, after all, and probably saved our country from being overrun by the Red Menace.

His third wife was a nice Baptist girl named Margaret Lea.
