    The point is this Texas was indeed part of Mexico at one time. There was a fight and that was the end of it. Old Santa Claus Anna was busy with some cute chick when Sam Houston sneaked up on him. Texas isn't going back to Mexico. There simply is no one, short of the Supreme Lord, who can make that happen.
    Yes, it was, and no, no force short of the Supreme Being will make it go back. The Ukraine, on the other hand, is a sovereign nation and not a state or possession of Russia.

    I see you have been partaking!

    Yep, they will do that to ya. Make you say all kind of stuff, some say they can make you speak in tongues! lol

    By the afternoon of April 18, 1836, General Santa Anna had moved his men into position to attack the Texas rebels he knew to be nearby. On his approach was New Washington - now mostly deserted as its inhabitants fled before his marching army. One of those that remained behind, however, was Emily, and Santa Anna was immediately struck by her beauty.

    The next morning, after his men helped themselves to the crops and cattle, Santa Anna set about securing one more "spoil of war" - Emily. He captured her and a young "yellow boy" named Turner loading yet another flatboat headed for Houston's army. Santa Anna cajoled Turner to lead his Mexican scouts to the Houston encampment. But as they were departing, Emily convinced Turner to escape from Santa Anna's men and rush to Houston's camp to inform him of the Mexican general's arrival.

    General Santa Anna believed himself quite the ladies' man. And although still married to a woman in Mexico, he remarried one of his teenaged captives from his Texas campaign. But he had been without his most recent bride for two weeks now. Emily looked like she would make a very suitable replacement.

    Thus, he ordered the immediate setting up of his encampment on the plains of the San Jacinto despite protestations from his colonels who insisted the location violated all principles of wartime strategy. And they were right. Houston, upon hearing of Santa Anna's location from Turner, moved his troops into the woods within a scant mile of the beguiled general's headquarters.

    On the morning of April 21, Houston climbed a tree to spy into the Mexican camp. There he saw Emily preparing a champagne breakfast for Santa Anna, and reportedly remarked, "I hope that slave girl makes him [Santa Anna] neglect his business and keeps him in bed all day." [Garner]

    By afternoon, the great final battle for the independence of Texas was engaged. The Mexican army was caught completely by surprise, and Santa Anna was literally caught "with his pants down." (Reports at the time said he was caught running away from the battle with his studded silk shirt opened and concealed under a dead soldier's blue smock - hurriedly put on during his attempted escape.)

    I didn't know that. I did know about the battle of San Jacinto, of course, but the history of the Yellow Rose is another matter.

    Thanks for the history lesson.

    That was interesting. Now, some say it is only a legend, while others say it is true. I honestly don't know for sure, but I tend to believe it.

    Concerning high yellow black girls, Jasmine Guy was very pretty, but I'm telling you, I have seen many girls that beautiful in the southern part of my home state. OMG! You have never seen anything like that.

    Well I obviously I know better than yourself. Carry on though. I find yours and some other posts here quite amusing as you defend Russia.

Looks different when you view it in those terms.

    That is very true. However I will still take my western views over a country that controls it's media with an iron fist.
