About The Book

From October through December, 1836, forty-four men (30 representatives and fourteen senators) convened in a drafty clapboard house in Columbia (now West Columbia.)

Their task was to craft a body of law that would bind together the fiercely independent citizens of this land into a cohesive, sovereign nation. This was the first session of the first congress of the Republic of Texas and this volume contains the fruit of their democratic labors.
