   Matamoros and the Texas Revolution
Matamoros book cover
The traditional story of the Texas Revolution remembers the Alamo and Goliad but forgets Matamoros, the strategic Mexican port city on the lower Rio Grande.

Author Craig Roell shows the genuine economic, geographic, social, and military value of Matamoros to Mexican and Texas history.

His reinterpretation of the revolutionary conflict in Texas from a Mexican point of view turns the traditional story on its head.

No. 23 in the Fred Rider Cotten Popular History Series.
