Treasury of Texas Trivia
Texas and Texans have been known to boast of having the best or the worst, the most or the least, the largest or the tiniest of just about everything. Join author Bill Cannon as he reveals facts that depict the colorful bravado unique to the Lone Star State. For instance, no six but seven flags flew over Texas. In 1832 the composer of The Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key, was the cousel hired by Sam Houston to defend him on assault charges. And someone other than Sam Bass may be buried in his grave.
A Treasury of Texas Trivia is complemented by newspaper accounts, photographs, and other documentation of these and other little-known bits of Texas history.
