The theme for the 127th Annual Convention of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas is "Pathway to Texas." I am very thankful for the opportunity to speak to the group about Trammel's Trace and its role in delivering many of their ancestors to the Republic.
I will be doing a workshop session from 1:15 - 2:00 pm on Thursday, May 17th, after which I will have books for sale and signing. Then during the reception that evening I have the wonderful opportunity to take the audience for a 10-minute trip along the road that many of their ancestors took to Texas. Accounts of the rivers, swamps, critters, storms, floods, and interesting characters will be part of the tale.
Many thanks to Susan Aikin for the invitation.
