Mirabeau B. Lamar Travel Journal, 1835


On his 1835 trip from Georgia to Texas, Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar kept a manuscript diary. This journal is written in continuous narrative form, with frequent historical or descriptive passages inserted, covering the months June-October, 1835, the period during which Lamar apparently made his decision to settle in Texas permanently and join in the Texian battle for independence from Mexico. Lamar went on to serve the Republic of Texas; second President.
