Sally Brandt Nov 2015

Sally Brandt gave a presentation at the November meeting on her ancestor, Edward T. Manton, who was soldier and who wrote an eyewitness account of the famous Dawson Massacre of 1842. Manton and other soldiers fought against the Mexican army, which was invading the area not far from San Antonio. Manton was taken prisoner and kept in Mexico for two years before being released in 1844.
