Education for Texas

Lamar believed that Texas greatness rested on the establishment of public education. Under Lamar's leadership, Texas began to set aside public lands that could be used as an educational system. Nearly worthless at the time, the land would one day fund schools, colleges, and world-famous universities.


Thoughts on Indians

Lamar believed that the Indians had no integrity; thus, there was no possibility of peaceful negotiation or co-existence. The only solution to the violent clashes between whites and Indians was to rid Texas of the Indians--Permanently.
