On this episode of This Month In Texas History we change things up a little bit. We still take a look at many events in the many June's of Texas history, including the founding of San Juan Bautista, the mother of Texas missions; Spain's declaration of war during the American Revolution; the Second Battle of Adobe Walls; and the discovery of the Corsicana oil and gas field. Then we highlight June 19, 1865 and June 15, 1921. We celebrate both Juneteenth and the amazing but brief life of Bessie Coleman, a pioneer in aviation and in civil rights.
