Denton Florian is one of the foremost experts on Sam Houston, the great Texas general, president, and governor (in that order); and Texas history in general. He was the executive producer of the five-time EMMY winning documentary "Sam Houston: American Statesman, Soldier, and Pioneer." Denton joined the podcast to discuss how the new book "Forget The Alamo" attempts to do as "The 1619 Project" did (a conversation we had with Dr. Mary Grabar two episodes prior) and reframe (or often rewrite) history through the lens of slavery and race.

While agenda-driven journalists work to rewrite history in hopes that you will forget obvious historical facts about America and now Texas, we think this is a conversation you'll definitely remember.
