Summary
"Angelina Belle Peyton Eberly is best known for firing a cannon down Congress Avenue thereby firmly establishing Austin-rather than Houston-as the capital of Texas. Who was this brash boardinghouse keeper who carved such an explosive niche in the annals of Texas history? One contemporary describes her as 'not only a devout patriot, but as one of the handsomest and most queenly women ever . . .' Dr. King, author of an impressive stable of Texas books, delves deeply into the life and times of this mystery woman to create a fascinating vignette of Texas history. Angelina arrived in Texas with her first husband to share the trials and tribulations of the first colonists at San Felipe de Austin. She was on a first name basis with most of the heroes of the Texas revolution and became known as 'the woman who dared oppose Sam Houston'"--Dust jacket flap
