Remembering the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto
Athena Kerry, who was homeschooled in the Lone Star State and is now a senior in college, is offended by the "Texism" she's encountered. Liberal college, kiddo.
Apart from that gripe, she shares a neat vignette about her home history class: "We started by studying the native Indians who once populated Texas — the Caddo, Tonkawa, Comanche and Apache. My brother and grandfather constructed a life-size Tipi in which our mother/teacher served us buffalo meat. We learned about Cabeza de Vaca’s shipwreck, Coronado’s golden city, and LaSalle at Matagorda Bay. As Catholics, we visited the Mission Concepcion in San Antonio, and read books on Stephen F. Austin."
