After Monroe Edwards died in Sing Sing prison in 1847, penny dreadfuls memorialized him as the most celebrated American forger until the turn of the century. With a bizarre biography too complicated for easy history, his critical contributions to Texas settlement, revolution and annexation were inextricably mired in his activities as a slave smuggler and confidence man. Author Lora-Marie Bernard unravels the unbelievable story of one of the most notorious criminal adventurers ever to set foot on the soil of the Lone Star State.
WASHINGTON – Hours before President Donald J. Trump took office Friday morning, thousands of people made the walk to the Mall lined by protesters who at times protested each other.
At the L’Enfant Plaza metro stop, hundreds were in line watching a long line of protesters hoisting 10-foot signs into the air. They proclaimed the need to seek forgiveness from Jesus, resist homosexuality and stop immigration. A sign that read “Christ has a pressure-cooker for Muslims” incensed another protester.

On the beat coverage of Donald Trump's Austin rally.
Communities have spent more than 100 years mastering the mighty Brazos River and its waterways. In the 1800s, Stephen F. Austin chose the Brazos River as the site for the first Texas colony because of its vast water and fertile soil. Within 75 years, a pumping station would herald the way for crop management. A sugar mill that was eventually known as Imperial Sugar spurred community development. In 1903, John Miles Frost Jr. tapped the Brazos to expand the Cane and Rice Belt Irrigation System while Houston newspapers predicted the infrastructure marvel would change the region’s future—and it did. Within a few decades, the Texas agricultural empire caused Louisiana to dub Texas farmers “the sugar and rice aristocracy.” As the dawn of the industrial age began, the Brazos River and its waterways began supplying the Texas Gulf Coast industry.
