On March 25th-26th, 2017, ten individuals—history professors, graduate students, and friends of the Association—will unite as Team TSHA to compete in the arduous 200-mile relay race known as the Texas Independence Relay. Through 40 relay legs, follow Team TSHA as they trace the path from Gonzales, where the first rumblings of the Texas Revolution began, to the San Jacinto Monument, where Texas finally won its independence.
For the 5th year in a row, Team TSHA will be running to support the Handbook of Texas Online, a massive guide detailing the people, places, and events that have shaped Texas. With over 27,000 articles accessible for free, the Handbook of Texas Online is one of the most authoritative guides to the culture and history of the Lone Star State.
