Fisher County Historical News

During the month of May, the Fisher County Historical Commission sold tickets for a drawing. The drawing was held to bring a little publicity to the Commission, and hopefully spark some interest in others in the county. President Zenita Gardner drew the winning ticket (see attachment) and it belonged to a long-time member of the Newman community. Jim Lanning has since moved to New York, but he won the book, Veterans of Fisher County!

The Commission met Tuesday night with 15 members and 2 guests present. The night’s presentation was on the History of the Newman Community and enjoyed by all present. Refreshments followed the meeting.

Booted from the Alamo, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas kept treasured library

San Antonio celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2018. The history of the city —and of Texas — comes to life in the artwork, manuscripts and maps of a library that has recently found a new home.

BY ALEX ARRIAGA Jan. 1, 2018, The Texas Tribune texastribune.org

SAN ANTONIO — When the state fired the Daughters of the Republic of Texas as caretakers of the Alamo in 2015, the women's group fought — and won — the right to keep a piece of the shrine that they considered sacred: an archive collection of 38,000 photographs, artworks, maps and manuscripts prized by Texas historians.
