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.
