While on the road, I try to keep an eye out for interesting sites. Texas has over 2,500 Texas roadside markers that feature historical events; famous and infamous Texans; origins of towns, churches, and organizations; battles, skirmishes, and gunfights; and settlers, pioneers, Indians, and outlaws. Many time we are driving somewhere in Texas and pass a historical marker sign and we sometimes wonder, What Happened There? With this book, we can actually read up about the marker and what it records and relive the tragedies and triumphs of Lone Star history. It is a neat book my parents gave each of us so that we know more of the local history.
