Lone Star History Links: Selected Texas History Primary Source Documents

Logo, Lone Star History Links

A collection of links to primary source material about Texas history from the 16th to the 20th century. The collection is divided into 11 chronological sections within which 30 to 60 links are arranged by date. Some documents are facsimiles, but most have been transcribed.

Documents include Coronado's 1540 report to the King of Spain about his explorations in Texas, personal accounts of the 1835 revolution, proclamations of Emperor Augustín I of Mexico, battle reports from the Mexican American War, a letter home from a Texan in the Confederate Army, and the Zimmerman telegram of 1917. The site is searchable by subject, and will be useful for research on the history of Texas and the American west.
