Archival Documents Examined in Drs. Harris and Sadler’s Latest Book “The Plan De San Diego: Tejano Rebellion, Mexican Intrigue”
Authors to present Sunday Speaker Series program at MOSTHistory on Sept. 15, 2013 at 2 p.m.

The Museum of South Texas History welcomes authors Charles H. Harris III, Ph.D. and Louis R. Sadler, Ph.D. as they present their latest work, “The Plan de San Diego: Tejano Rebellion, Mexican Intrigue” (University of Nebraska Press, 2013). Drs. Harris and Sadler’s book about a rebellion proposed in 1915 to overthrow the U.S. government in the Southwest and establish a Hispanic republic was researched in part using newly available archival documents, known as the Agustín S. Garza Collection, recently acquired by MOSTHistory with assistance from the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation and The Summerlee Foundation. During this Sunday Speaker Series program, audience members will be able to view original Plan de San Diego documents, participate in a question and answer session and meet the authors during a book signing where copies of “The Plan de San Diego” will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Location: Courtyard Gallery
Cost*: included in regular museum admission

About Museum of South Texas History
The Museum of South Texas History is located in downtown Edinburg at 200 North Closner Boulevard on the Hidalgo County Courthouse square. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Founded in 1967 as the Hidalgo County Historical Museum in the 1910 Hidalgo County Jail, the museum has grown over the decades through a series of expansions to occupy a full city block. In 2003 following the completion of a 22,500 square foot expansion, the museum was renamed the Museum of South Texas History to better reflect its regional scope. Today, the museum preserves and presents the borderland heritage of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico through its permanent collection and the Margaret H. McAllen Memorial Archives and exhibits spanning prehistory through the 20th century. More information about the museum, including becoming a FRIEND, is available at or by calling +1-956-383-6911.
