  1. I've never read that Louisianans did, but on this webpage, there is reference to Texans' escape to Louisiana and the military training the Texan army got there.

    Be sure to read this entire section, and check out the footnoted references if you need to:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Revolution#Texan_retreat:_.22The_Runaway_Scrape.22

    Let us know what you decide.
