Battle of Medina Society Mission Statement
Be Part of History
Due to the testimony of the Society’s Founder at the State Board of Education, the Battle of Medina is now in the curriculum to be taught in schools throughout Texas in the 7th grade; it is also mentioned on a plaque on the Tejano Monument; therefore it is vital that the correct version be taught and not the myths that have developed around it. The Tejano Battle of Medina and the Tejano Declaration of Independence have been celebrated in Losoya and San Antonio by the founder for the last 6 years. He has also led 10 expeditions in search of the battle site.
