Small town history

Bastrop is considered the most historical small town in Texas. Bastrop is so historic because of many reasons but there are mainly three that I want to point out. The first reason is because the town is named after Baron De Bastrop, who was also a thief. It was named after him because he was a close friend to Stephen f. Austin. The second reason is that the people have played a very helpful hand in Texas history. There were people who fought in the Alamo, and even the battle of San Jacinto. One last thing that the people did is sign the Texas deceleration of independence. The very last thing on why Bastrop is important to our history is because it was almost the capital.
