State museum canceled book event examining slavery’s role in Battle of the Alamo after Texas GOP leaders complained, authors say

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick confirmed on Twitter that he called for the event to be canceled. Abbott, Patrick and other GOP leaders are board members of the State Preservation Board, which oversees the Bullock museum.

“If the state history museum isn’t the right place to talk about state history, then I don’t know what to do.”
