The Counterfeit Prince of Old Texas

Swindling Slaver Monroe Edwards 

 Front Cover

 

Moments before the Texas Revolution began, Tejas was the epicenter for Britain, Mexico, and the United States. Each country believed the fertile land with great rivers was poised to become the world’s next big economy.

Monroe Edwards and his family played each of these countries against the other. His now forgotten family funded Stephen F. Austin when he began the Texas immigration movement. They created rebellions and lost their fortune. At one point, Monroe’s uncles even tried to start a new country, Fredonia.

To recapture their legacy, Monroe exploited the politics, morality, and economics of the times. Instead of reclaiming glory, he died in agony at Sing Sing prison.

This is a story about how one man’s destiny escapes him. Monroe was an emerging hero at the dawn of the Texas Revolution. Within a few years, he fell into demise as the leading Texas human-trafficker, smuggler, and international forger.

The Counterfeit Prince of Old Texas: Swindling Slaver Monroe Edwards is the adventure of one man who swindled his life away and became one of Texas’s most notorious criminals.

Lower Brazos River Canals

 

 

Step into the history of one of Texas’s river communities with Lower Brazos River Canals, an illustrative history of the river that built Texas.
Communities have spent more than 100 years mastering the mighty Brazos River and its waterways. In the 1800s Stephen F. Austin chose the Brazos River as the site for the first Texas colony because of its vast water and f ertile soil. Within 75 years, a pumping station would herald the way for crop management. A sugar mill that would eventually be known as Imperial Sugar would spur community development.

In 1903 John Miles Frost Jr tapped the Brazos to expand the Cane and Rice Belt Irrigation System and Houston newspapers predicted the infrastructure marvel would change the region’s future and it did. Within a few decades, the Texas agriculture empire would cause Louisiana to dub Texas farmers as “the sugar and rice aristocracy.” When the industrial age began, the Brazos River and its waterways began supplying the Texas Gulf Coast industry.
