In Addition To The Grass At San Jacinto Park, Should 1836 Borders Also Be Restored?

Above is a picture I took a few weeks back at the San Jacinto Battlefield State Historic Park that is just outside Houston.

This is the place where the battle that won Texas independence was fought in 1836.

It is great that the grass is being restored to how it looked in 1836.

I’m sure that will be some very tall grass. Here is a report about this grass from Houston public radio station KUHF.

Looking at the sign that told me about the grass, I wondered also if the borders that were in place in 1836 should be restored as well.

Below is a map of Mexico as it was in 1824. (Map by Golbez.)

Now that would be quite a restoration.

Here are some facts and history about the U.S.-Mexico border from the Smithsonian.
