Fort Bend County Libraries will present an online Texas history program on the Texas Revolution on Friday, April 23, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. This program will be live-streamed via Webex; it will NOT be in person.
Dr. Nicholas Cox, a professor of Texas and U.S. History at Houston Community College, will discuss the events leading up to the Texas Revolution from fall 1835 to spring 1836, with a focus on the historic battles at Gonzales, the Alamo, and San Jacinto. Learn how the battles transpired, their significance in the Texas revolution, and their impact on Texas history.
Dr. Cox received his doctorate degree in U.S. History from the University of Houston. In addition to teaching Texas history at Houston Community College, Dr. Cox has taught at the Bronx Academy of Letters in New York City and the University of Houston.
