This edition highlights the newest collaborative exhibit at the Alamo – “Standing Their Ground: Tejanos at the Alamo.” The thought-provoking exhibit, which runs from February 21 to June 6, 2014, shares the very personal stories of Tejano defenders and their own struggle for liberty. Visitors will also learn of the links between revolutionary Tejanos and the Archives of the Texas General Land Office.
Also, find out more about the involvement of the GLO at the 118thAnnual Meeting of the Texas State Historical Association in San Antonio on March 6-8 and the educational resources that continue to be made available by Archives staff.
In addition, a 1773 map of New Spain is featured, as is the birth certificate of Juan Seguin, both treasures that can be found in the GLO archival vaults.
