The Perfect Gift
for Every Texan.
In the fall of 1990 TEXAS FOREVER!! became a reality. Nearly a decade of research and
planning has brought the Texas Revolution to life in a thirty minute presentation-on a giant
screen in a custom designed theater-at the San Jacinto Monument in Houston.
To help tell the story of that epic struggle, artist/historian Charles Shaw was com-
missioned to recreate thirty-five crucial scenes. TEXAS FOREVER!! the paintings brings
all of the pictures together in one book. lHere you can examine the pastoral detail of Austin's
Colony on the Brazos. You can almost feel the defiance of a small band of Texicans at Goliad.
Meet again the brooding Houston and the arrogant Santa Anna, and meet for the first time
gallant Colonel Almonte and the star-crossed Castrillon. Finally, bear witness to the vicious,
bitter eighteen minutes that crushed the Mexican army and created the Republic of Texas.
It's all recorded here.
J. C. Martin, Director of the San Jacinto Museum has written the introduction.
Thoughtful essays on the men, the politics and the tools of warfare in 1836 set the stage for
the paintings. Mr. Shaw adds insight into the evolution of selected pictures and an historical
text expands on the action of each painting. The book is produced at Wind River Press under
the supervision of David Holman.
TEXAS FOREVER!! the paintings will be a proud addition to the library of anyone
