How The Old Historic Oak Received Its Scars

Body
Back on Sept. 15, 1842, Nicholas Mosby Dawson organized his ill-fated company under the branches of a large oak tree on the square in La Grange. They planned to come to the aid of San Antonio by repelling an invasion by Mexico. However, three days later, in a fight outside San Antonio near Salado Creek, Dawson and 35 of his men were killed. Two escaped, but 15 others were captured and imprisoned in Mexico.
