Sam Houston's campaign against Santa Anna and invading Mexicans in 1835, as witnessed by a young Houston supporter, Ladd Merrill of Tennessee. Notable in Ladd's adventures were the burning of Harrisburg, acquaintance with such individuals as Jim Bowie, Houston, Davy Crockett, the siega of the Alamo and ownership of the famous horse Foxfire. At war's end, Ladd and his older brother decide to homestead along the Brazos.
