Anyone who loves Texas History needs to stop and see the statue to a man who helped change how people view Texas. His stature can be seen in this monument, as he looks out on East Texas.

This is the largest statue I have ever seen. Amazingly the statue has weathered time nicely and has great detail for it’s size. This is something you will never see again.

Having driven past this imposing statue countless times as I made the trip between Dallas and Houston, I finally decided to pull off I-45 for a closer look. Standing 67 feet tall on a 10-foot granite base, it is the world’s tallest statue of an...More
