Auction - Early Texana etc.

Texas Historic Diary in Heritage Auction

Published January 14th, 2009

"Texas Revolution comes alive at Heritage Auction Galleries with legendary Alamo commander's 1836 letter and Joseph Pulsifer's early Texas Republic diary.

Two of the most important items in early Texas history - a broadside (poster) of an urgent plea from Col. William Travis on March 3, 1836 for volunteers to defend the Alamo and a diary with nearly 150 letters from a settler describing the early days of the Texas Republic - are among the many "Texana" items to be offered in a public auction in Dallas and online by Heritage Auction Galleries. The sale of the broadside, one of only three known, will raise funds to maintain a collection of artifacts now housed in a Fort Worth museum."
