The Hero of Austin
Last month, Miss Angelina Eberly saved our capital, Austin, from President Houston. Houston wanted the capital of Texas to be a city named after him ,so he sent Colonel Thomas I. Smith and Captain Eli Chandler to steal the archives. If it wasn't for Miss Angelina, Houston would have gotten his selfish ways.
why did President Houston want Houston as texas's capital?
In this image, you will see Miss Angelina firing a cannon at Colonel Thomas I. Smith and Captain Eli Chandler and the citizens of Austin cheering for her.
She was born on July 2, 1798 in Sumner County, TN. She is also the hero of Austin. She met married Captain Jacob Eberly in 1836.
He wanted Houston to be the capital of Texas. Because of his selfishness, many citizens were angered. His plan failed and Austin is still the Republic's capital.
