I was passing through Huntsville on my way to Houston this weekend. When I noticed that the infamous Hunstville prison was located right along the highway. I didn’t notice any signs about picking up strangers but what captured my attention the most was this huge statue of Sam Houston. Not knowing nothing about this guy I googled him the first chance I had. And Mr. Houston turned out to be pretty interesting.
National Park carries his name
City of Houston named after him
Governor of 2 States
2nd wife was an Indian
Decorated war veteran
Houston was also a SLAVE OWNER (follow link below)
Bottom line they call him an American hero…I know in today’s society we can easliy find fault in other people especially if we don’t like them but are there any true American Hero’s left?? If so who??
