Day by Day, in Texas history

You don’t have to live in Texas to be a fan of Texas history. You don’t even have to be a Texan!

If you are interested in learning more about Texas, the Texas State Historical Association offers
TSHA Online—A Digital Gateway to Texas History.

For example: On this day in 1855 some 200 French colonists arrived at the colony of La Réunion, located on the south bank of the Trinity River in central Dallas County within the present city limits of Dallas.

It didn’t work out well for the French colonists, but today Dallas stands tall on the Texas prairie.

O Reader, if you don’t live in Texas, perhaps your state offers something similar to TSHA. If so, please send us a link. I would love to plug into other state history associations (my best resource for information on state flags), and I think other readers here would be interested in that too.
