Tim asked a 15 year old boy, a 35 year old mother of 3, a 36 year old teacher, and a grandmother about Texas Independence.
None knew when Texas declared independence.
The teacher knew a major battle (the Alamo), the last battle (San Jacinto), and the generals of both sides.
The others could not name a major battle towards Texas independence.
The grandmother knew the general of the Texas army was Sam Houston and the general of the Mexican army was Santa Ana.
Why not quiz your family, especially the kids, and see what they know about Texas independence.
