“One of the most important discoveries in documentary materials for Texas history to be published at the start of this new century. It will influence scholars to re-evaluate earlier conclusions of the tensions in the 1830’s that culminated in Texan Independence.”

~ Dr. Félix Almaráz, Peter T. Flawn Distinguished University Professor of Borderlands History,  University of Texas, San Antonio

Voices from the Goliad Frontiermakes the minutes of the municipal council of the Texas-Mexican community of Goliad readily available to researchers for the first time.  It will be an essential source for historians who write about the politics, economics, culture, or society of the community as well as for those who write about Mexican Texas in general.”
David J. Weber, Dedman Professor of History and Director, Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University
