Movie Details

John F. Kennedy said it correctly in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Profiles in Courage: "Sam Houston was one of the most independent, unique, popular, forceful, and dramatic
individuals to enter the stage of American history."
Sam Houston shaped American History. As the Commander-in-Chief of the Army of the Republic of Texas, he led the charge in the Battle at the San Jacinto that changed the course of American history. Events that followed from that battle led to the annexation by the United States of territory covering at least 8 western states, and completed the manifest destiny of spreading the United States of America from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
He was a man of incredible contrasts. His life was a whirlwind of rising and falling fortunes. He was loved, he was despised. There was no middle ground for opinions. He
consorted with American Presidents, but at times he was a rough frontiersman, living in the wilderness in huts and Indian wigwams. He was a man of destiny. He was the founder of a nation. At one time or another Sam Houston was the governor of two different states, a President, a U.S. senator, and a U.S. congressman.
Join us in this study of the life of a true American Hero.
