Offering a new take on the stirring story of the Texas Revolution, this history focuses on the financial underpinnings and monetary issues that factored into the struggle. Deftly weaving numismatics and history into an engaging and highly entertaining narrative, the story unveils a verifiable trail of many of the most significant people and events surrounding the struggle for independence in Texas. It is replete with colourful anecdotes about visionary kings, obsessive dictators, crooked politicians, and counterfeiters and includes a detailed history of each piece of coin and currency used in the old Republic.
