"Texas Fights & Fighters: A Short Account Of The Struggle For Texas Independence" by Cyrus T. Brady is a short history that covers the struggle of the American Texas settlers to win their independence from the Mexican State of General Santa Anna.
Cyrus Townsend Brady (1861-1920) was an Episcopal clergyman and historian as well as a novelist. He was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1883. In 1889, he was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal church and was ordained a priest in 1890.
Brady published over 70 novels, all with an accurate historical basis, many of them based on incidents and historical figures in American history. He also published non fiction histories in a series called "Fights And Fighters." He used many primary sources such as diaries, letters, and journals, both published and unpublished, which made him unusual for popular history authors of his time. He also wrote in clear, simple language that made his books popular; unlike the stuffy verbose prose of the professional historian of his day.
This book, "Texas Fights & Fighters: A Short Account Of The Struggle For Texas Independence," deals with the struggle of the American settlers of Texas in their revolution for independence. It is a short account of that struggle, but hits all the high points, including The Alamo, The Goliad Massacre, and the Battle of San Jacinto, where the overwhelming victory of Sam Houston secured the struggle for Texas independence.
A must-read for the student of Texas history. This e-book contains the illustrations Brady used in the original volume.
