Renew today and continue to promote the knowledge of Texas history

Thank you! Our Members are critically important to us. Without you, we would not be celebrating our 125th birthday this year. As we reflect on what we accomplished in the past, we also look forward to the future. Thank you for renewing your support.

For our anniversary year, we have made a few changes.

  • the ability to save your favorite Handbook entries directly to your dashboard; and,

  • access to archived Texas Talks and other events, such as the San Jacinto Symposium.

With the exception of the $35 Digital Membership, Members also receive print TSHA publications which include, depending on Membership level:

  • the Touchstone and Texas Historian journals, featuring research from young scholars;

  • four issues per year of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly;

  • and the most recent edition of the Texas Almanac.

Returning Members will also continue to be rewarded with special book offers.

Matamoros and the Texas Revolution

The traditional story of the Texas Revolution remembers the Alamo and Goliad but has forgotten Matamoros, the strategic Mexican port city on the turbulent lower Rio Grande. In this provocative book, Craig Roell restores the centrality of Matamoros by showing the genuine economic, geographic, social, and military value of the city to Mexican and Texas history. As an economic center and cultural hub, Matamoros's strategic location and considerable trade revenues were crucial. Roell provides a refreshing reinterpretation of the revolutionary conflict in Texas from a Mexican point of view, essentially turning the traditional story on its head.
