"Lone Star Navy" tells the story of a little fleet of wooden warships, bought on credit by an impoverished band of revolutionaries and sent to sea on a single mission: to win Texas's independence from Mexico. In this thoroughly researched and highly entertaining account, Jonathan W. Jordan recounts the improbable story of how the Texas navy helped the short-lived Republic of Texas break away from Mexico and change the course of history in the American West.
Jonathan W. Jordan has written on numerous historical topics for publications including Military History Quarterly. A graduate of Vanderbilt University Law School, he is a practicing attorney. He lives in the Atlanta area.
