          A new congressional district in Texas stretches from San Antonio to Austin – location of the museum of the French Legation built in 1840—41.  The district also includes the Alamo.
         In 1836, the Mexicans sought to defeat Texans and Texians at the Alamo.
         In 1862, when the new U.S. republic was threatened by civil war, The French moved from Mexico to join forces with the seceding southern states.  The French supplied the Confederacy, but the armies did not connect. This was due in part because the French were opposed by the freedom seeking Mexicans and volunteer Texians on Mexican soil.
        In mid-October of 1862, Grant of Illinois, destined to become a U.S. president, began the siege of Vicksburg in western Mississippi along the large interior waterway – the Mississippi River.  The siege ended over a year later on 07/5/1863.  In Gettysburg, the battle also ended on 7/4/1863 after a disastrous charge by Pickett, ordered by General Lee and based on the battle tactics of French General Napoleon.
         In Goliad, Texas, there is a tribute to General Ignacio Zaragoza. “Born on this site when it was called “Bahia del Espiritu Santo;” in 1855, at the head of an army of Mexican volunteers, contributed to the defeat of dictator Santa Anna.     Always a leader in the defense of his country, on May 5, 1862, during the invasion of the French forces of Napoleon III and Maximilian, in the Battle of Puebla, he led 4,000 poorly armed soldiers to defeat 8,000 veteran French zouaves. This heroic victory gave Mexico its great national patriotic anniversary, “El Cinco de Mayo.”
        On 11/19/1863, a grateful U.S. president from Illinois, traveled to where America’s enemies were defeated and delivered the Gettysburg address.
        On 5/1/2012, a grateful U.S. president from Illinois, traveled to the location where a united America’s armies had once again defeated America’s enemies and spoke to the world.
