Incidents in the Life of Juan Seguin (1806-1890)

Juan Seguin was a family man, a soldier, a politician, a businessman, a judge, a Mexican, a Tejano, and a Texan, among many other identities and roles. During his lifetime, the small Mexican settlement near the presidio of San Antonio de BĂ©xar grew into a bustling Texas city, and he was an integral part of the Texas Revolution from Mexico.
