Feature Article on David Kokernot: Rogue Soldier of the Texas Revolution

David Kokernot's first home in Texas was on the shores of the San Jacinto River where it widens and enters San Jacinto Bay. His neighbors were mostly cattle ranchers sparsely scattered over the prairie between there and the Trinity River, fifteen miles away. Kokernot's abuse of those neighbors whom he considered insufficiently patriotic in the ensuing Texas Revolution left a bad taste that survives even to today. The Baytown Sun carried Wanda Orton's feature and review of the Rogue Soldier which will remind readers where that taste came from. Read the full article here (copied with permission of the Sun).
