What were the causes of the Texas Revolution? What key players and events helped a small group of revolutionaries achieve independence from Mexico? There are some mysteries to the story we may never solve. Sort through the fact and fiction of this epic moment in Texas history through an artifact adventure and discover why the Texas Revolution is crucial to understanding American history.

You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program. No supplies needed, but if you want to add on some extension activities, see below.
