Southern Gentleman, Marine, Germanic Tribalist -- A Different Point of View

Remember Goliad!

Daniel has a post celebrating the battle of San Jacinto, which happened today in 1836. Among the details he mentions is something I didn't know, about a fellow of the Great State of Georgia:

Brevit Colonel (he was formally a Private)Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar formerly of Georgia, formed the extreme right with his cavalry. Incidentally, this warrior-poet was later a President of The Texas Republic. He's one of my favorite Texan personalities.
