Unit 2 Starts Monday

Monday we begin Unit 2 Age of Contact, Spanish Colonial and Mexican National. We will be learning about Spanish and French explorers who played major roles in Texas History. Then we will look at how Spain and later Mexico would colonize in Texas. All of this will play a role in the events leading to the Texas Revolution.
