About the Lecture:
Forgotten Fire-eaters: Texans Leave the Union in 1861

Convinced by alarming events that they had to act decisively to defend the “southern way of life” against Northern abolitionists and their supporters, Texans in the fall of 1860 voted overwhelmingly against Abraham Lincoln, the Republican candidate for president. When Lincoln won the presidential race, Texas became one of seven Gulf South states to declare itself out of the Union before he was inaugurated. Texas political leaders organized a Secession Convention and held a referendum on leaving the union, while military commanders led state troops in an expulsion of the Federal garrisons that guarded the frontier and border. Gov. Sam Houston and other Unionists protested in vain against the rush to disunion, which ended in a complete, if ultimately short-lived, triumph for the fire-eaters who advocated secession.

Run Jump Fly at The DoSeum

Action-Adventure isn’t just for your favorite superheroes anymore! The DoSeum is ready to train a future generation of San Antonio Action Stars in our newest heart-pumping, skill-building exhibit, “Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action.” Kids will exercise their minds and bodies in an engaging space for kids of any age to move their bodies, have fun, and learn all about developing healthy habits.

In “Run! Jump! Fly!’s” Action Star Training, kids will build skills in balance, endurance, strength, and coordination. They will learn to master different bendy poses in the Yoga Station, balance on a board as it moves through mountains and oceans in Surf Snow, and maneuver across a rocky wall in Climbing Canyon. While breaking a sweat, visitors will also learn about the origins of their favorite activities and how they can stay healthy and active in their daily lives.
