Juan Seguin Tejano Leader

Juan Seguin Tejano Leader

$16.95

Juan Seguin took shelter in the Alamo in February of 1836, along with Bowie, Crockett, Travis and the other Texians when General Santa Anna was advancing on San Antonio. Seguin had been elected mayor of Bexar two years before. He was now the leader of a group of Tejanos who joined with the Anglos to fight for freedom, bravely opposing the brutal Santa Anna. After the Alamo was surrounded and came under bombardment, Colonel Travis sent Juan through the enemy lines carrying a final call for help. Though they did not receive the help they needed at the Alamo, without the courage of men like Seguin, Texas would not have gained independence.
