No it's not. I am going out on a limb here, but I seem to recall some one telling me a few years ago, some of the items that were at the old Richmond Museum now reside in the museum at Houston Baptist University in SW Houston off I-69.Is this the same museum that used to be in Richmond, Texas?
Not according to the folks at the museum.I have never heard that the name was based on a family named White, and I have lived near and worked in White Settlement for almost 40 years. The city got its name because it was the lone settlement of White settlers amid several Native American villages in the Fort Worth area in the Texas Republic territory in the 1840s. The area was called "White" because it was a settlement of White homesteaders, as opposed to other settlements in the vicinity that were composed of both White and Native American residents. In a fairly recent city vote, the residents of White Settlement voted by a margin of 8-1 to keep the name. There is no racial strive in the community and everyone gets along.
A great artifact!
This thread BADLY needs a new name - before some BLM members see this and go ballistic crying "racist"
I doubt there are any accounts of General Lee's many pocket knives.Are there any stories by a witness maybe or some information as to how some of the blades got broken off.
General Lee apologized for the condition, simple stating that he had carried it throughout the war. The implication being that the blades were broken during the war.Are there any stories by a witness maybe or some information as to how some of the blades got broken off.
According to the town itself the story of the name is the following:Not according to the folks at the museum.
