Texas in the Revolutionary War
The Texan cowboys already existed and they moved cattle to feed the army that fought against the English.
If the English army had not been defeated and thousands of prisoners taken in the Gulf of Mexico, all those troops would have been reinforcement in the Battle of Yorktown.
During the entire war, roughly 1,659 pesos were donated to the United States from among the Texas population.
These finances helped pay for the sailors and provisions in French Admiral de Grasse’s fleet that was pivotal in effecting the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781.
Additionally, the Texans who donated money to the independence movement and served in Galvez’s army aided the North American rebels directly.
For these reasons, Texans should be commemorated for their contributions to the establishment of the United States of America.
