Very nicely taken care of, and only 5 minutes off of Interstate 10.

Nice spot on the hill. Took a long time for the state of Texas to recognize this marker! It's worth it to see the flag with 33 stars, and to think of the dedication of these men and those who honored them.

68 German-American farmers tried to join the Union side in the Civil War, and their Confederate neighbors made sure they didn't. December 2015: Photo added.
