Topic: Texas Rising

Just finished watching this mini series on Amazon Prime....not super but I thought quite good.  Just passing this on especially to the folk who like historical setting drama.

Basically it starts right after the Alamo and goes to the winning of the conflict with Santa Anna.  10 Episodes.  Cast includes Bill Paxton as Sam Houston....

I will keep an eye out for that.

To have much knowledge , but no power.
