A passionate dedication...

This dedication is found in the front of the book entitled, "Inez, or, A Tale of The Alamo" by Augusta Jane Evans Wilson.   This was her first book.


The Texan Patriots

who triumphantly unfurled and waved aloft the
"Banner of the Lone Star!" Who wrenched asunder
the iron bands of despotic Mexico! And
wreathed the brow of the "Queen State!"
with the glorious chaplet of "Civil
and Religious Liberty!"

This Work is respectfully Dedicated

by the author.

It isn't often I find a dedication as stirring as this.
