SEPTEMBER 30, 1830

Stone, Ron
January 1984
Book of Texas Days;1984, p168
The article focuses on Jim Bowie who was granted citizenship by the Congress of Coahuila on September 30, 1830. Citizenship was necessary because Bowie was going into business, and a foreigner was not allowed to engage in a trade unless he became a citizen. He spent less than ten years in Texas, and by all standards they were not good times. He wasted time looking for a nonexistent gold mine.
