"One of the least known but most important battles of the Texas Revolution occurred not with arms but with words, not in Texas but in New Orleans. In the fall of 1835, Creole mercantile houses backed the opposition forces against Santa Anna. As a result, New Orleans capital, some $250,000 in loans, and New Orleans men and arms - two companies known as the New Orleans Greys - went to support the upstart Texans in their battle for independence."
"Author Edward L. Miller has delved into previously unused or overlooked papers housed in New Orleans to reconstruct a chain of events that set the Crescent City, in many ways, at the center of the Texian fight for independence. Not only did Now Orleans business interests send money and men to Texas in exchange for promises of land, but they also provided newspaper coverage that set the scene for later American annexation of the young republic."--Jacket.
