Texan Support for Mexican War

January 27, 1843

An item from the Lexington Baptist Pioneer, is titled, “Spirit of Texas”.  It is from a clergyman who “represents Texas”, who writes to the editor of the Commercial Advertiser.   He comments on how difficult the war is, and that it will be a “long and distressing war”.  “We are prepared to sacrifice our all, resolved to conquer or die. Never have I seen manifested such heroic patriotism…… Our cause is good. We are fighting for religious liberty.  Let but the Mexicans succeed, and the Bible will be driven from Texas.”
