Ep. 80: The Twin Sisters, Part 1

184 years ago, the Texas Army was long on spirit, but short on guns.  Artillery, that is.  How would they take on Santa Anna without some “hollow ware?”  Enter the good people of Cincinnati, Ohio.  They formed a committee, the “Friends of Texas,” to support our war effort.  They sent two cannons to Texas and they reached the Texas Army just in time.  Used to great effect at the Battle of San Jacinto, the “twin sisters” disappeared from history.  Where are they now?  Theories abound but nobody has located them yet.  In Part 1, hear the story of how the twin sisters came to be and the important role they played in winning the fight for freedom.

  1. Hello,
    I much enjoyed this narration. I am a direct descendant of a man named Thomas Chaudoin, (wounded at the battle of Velasco). I had read that he and a man named Breedlove were responsible for transporting the Twin Sisters from the Bernardo plantation to Sam Houstons army. I never see his name mentioned as being involved in the accounts I’ve read, or heard, from various sources. I wonder if he was just not very well thought of. LOL!
