A group of right-wing members of the Democratic Party began plotting against President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1944 they joined together to form the Texas Regulars. Members included Wilbert Lee O'Daniel,Martin Dies, Eugene B. Germany and Hugh R. Cullen. Supported by Texas oilmen, the group were also opposed to the fixed prices of oil and gas imposed by Roosevelt's government during the Second World War. They also campaigned against the New Deal, civil rights and pro-trade union legislation. The group disbanded in 1945 after they failed to remove Roosevelt as the leader of their party.

Former members of the Texas Regulars were also opposed to Harry S. Truman and his Fair Deal proposals that included legislation on civil rights, fair employment practices, opposition to lynching and improvements in existing public welfare laws. When Truman won the nomination in 1948, these men joined the States' Rights Democratic Party (Dixiecrats) and Storm Thurmond was chosen as its presidential candidate. It was thought that with two former Democrats, Thurmond and Henry Wallace standing, Truman would have difficulty defeating the Republican Party candidate, Thomas Dewey. However, both Thurmond and Wallace did badly and Truman defeated Dewey by 24,105,812 votes to 21,970,065.

These right-wingers continued to be active in politics after Harry S. Truman became president. In 1952 Hugh R. Cullen, Sid Richardson and Clint Murchison gave their support to Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Republican Party. His main political concern was in the preservation of the oil depletion allowance. He was therefore pleased by Eisenhower's decision to employ Robert Anderson (the former president of the Texas Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association) as Secretary of the Navy and Secretary of the Treasury. In this post Anderson introduced legislation beneficial to the oil industry.

This group were also great supporters of Joseph McCarthy. Cullen, Jesse H. Jones, and Clint Murchison all provided funds for McCarthy. As Murchison pointed out in 1954: "We all made money fast. We were interested in nothing else. Then this communist business suddenly burst upon us. Were we going to lose what we had gained?"

Some former members of the Texas Regulars were also involved in the Suite 8F Group, a collection of right-wing political and businessmen. The name comes from the room in the Lamar Hotel in Houston where they held their meetings. Members of the group included George Brown and Herman Brown (Brown & Root), Jesse H. Jones (multi-millionaire investor in a large number of organizations and chairman of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation), Gus Wortham (American General Insurance Company), James Abercrombie (Cameron Iron Works), Hugh R. Cullen (Quintana Petroleum), William Hobby (Governor of Texas and owner of the Houston Post), William Vinson (Great Southern Life Insurance), James Elkins (American General Insurance and Pure Oil Pipe Line), Albert Thomas (chairman of the House Appropriations Committee), Lyndon B. Johnson (Majority Leader of the Senate) and John Connally (Governor of Texas). Alvin Wirtz and Edward Clark, were two lawyers who were also members of the Suite 8F Group.

History of the Texas Rangers (baseball)

The Texas Rangers Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise was established in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the old Washington Senators team of the American League moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. The new Senators remained in Washington through 1971 playing at Griffith Stadium in their first season and at RFK Stadium for the next 10 years. In 1972, the team moved to Arlington, Texas, where it became the Texas Rangers. The Rangers played at Arlington Stadium from 1972 to 1993, Globe Life Park in Arlington from 1994 to 2019. The team moved into Globe Life Field in 2020.

The Senators/Rangers franchise is widely regarded as one of the most unsuccessful organizations in all of North American professional sports. It took the team 36 seasons to finally make the playoffs and they have since made only eight appearances in the MLB postseason, seven following division championships in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016 and as a wild card team in 2012. In 2010, the Rangers advanced past the Division Series for the first time, taking 50 years to become the final team of the 30 active clubs to win a first round series, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays. The team then brought home their first American League pennant after beating the New York Yankees in six games. In the 2010 World Series, the franchise's first, the Rangers fell to the San Francisco Giants in five games. They repeated as American League champions the following year, then lost the 2011 World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games. As of their 61st season, they have the dubious distinction of actively holding the longest current drought amongst all North American pro sports franchises that are yet to win their first league championship, and only the Cleveland Indians hold a longer MLB title drought.

Battles and History

The Battalion organization has always existed in the US Army, though its size and role has differed over time.
The term Infantry "Battalion" has evolved to mean an organization comprised of 3 or 4 Companies of Infantry
and additional supporting units, and is directly subordinate to Regimental Command.

Under the Reorganization Objective Army Divisions (ROAD) plan of 1962-1964 the Army discontinued the use of
Regimental Command as the basic command structure within Brigades and instituted Battalion Command as the
basic command structure. This allowed each Battalion to be an independent entity, which in turn allowed each Battalion
to be assigned to a different Division if the Army deemed it necessary.

From around the beginning of the twentieth century to 1963 the 1st Battalion 22nd Infantry traditionally consisted
of Companies A, B, C and D of the 22nd Infantry Regiment. During that time the structure of Battalions within the Regiment
was formally adhered to however, before that time, Battalions were formed as needed, without regard to any formal structure.

For historical purposes, therefore, in order to present the history of 1st Battalion,
it is necessary to present the history of the Regiment
before the time when Battalion organization was rigidly defined.

A great deal of the early history of other Battalions of the Regiment is therefore presented on this website.
Beginning with the year (circa) 1966 only the history of 1st Battalion is presented.

The 22nd Infantry advances under fire, Battle of Chippewa, July 5, 1814.

Regulars, By God ! ----------------- Deeds Not Words

The 22nd Infantry Regiment was part of General Winfield Scott's Brigade in 1814. Because of a shortage of blue cloth, the Brigade went into battle
against the British at Chippewa, wearing jackets made of the only cloth available, in a "buff" or gray color. Because of their gray jackets,
the British commander, Major General Phineas Riall, mistakenly supposed them to be local militia.
However, as the 22nd and other units of the Brigade advanced through artillery and musket fire with unwavering military precision,
General Riall corrected his mistake with the cry "Those are regulars, by God".

The Regiment embraced the enemy General's description, and "Regulars, by God" became the 22nd's unofficial motto.

The official motto of the Regiment is "Deeds Not Words", and was approved in 1923, along with the Regiment's Distinctive Unit Insignia.
An early use of "Deeds Not Words" can be found in General Orders No. 64 of the 22nd Infantry Regiment, dated December 10, 1894.
This order was actually the formal farewell letter to the Regiment, by the outgoing Regimental Commander, COL Peter T. Swaine.

See Insignia & Memorabilia on this website, for photos of a letter written by an officer of the Regiment, dated 1903,
using a stationery heading with the motto "Deeds Not Words".

A theory of the origin of this motto comes from Bob Babcock, President of the 22nd Infantry Regiment Society:

"In reading the history of the 22nd Infantry Regiment in the Philippines, I found a reference to General Orders No. 10, dated June 4th, 1900.
The order read, 'Captain George J. Godfrey, 22nd U.S. Infantry. Killed in action. Shot through the heart. His military record is closed.
A brilliant career ended. Deeds, silent symbols more potent than words proclaimed his soldier worth..'

My speculation is that when official regimental crests and motto's were established in the 1920's, this order eulogizing a great infantryman
who had fought in Cuba and the Philippines played a part in the establishment of our official motto - Deeds Not Words!
And our Regiment has lived up to the motto."

1st Battalion Colors

Synopsis of 1st Battalion History:

Originally authorized on June 26, 1812, the 22nd Infantry Regiment was one of a number of additional Regiments of Infantry
consitutued by Congress on that date, in an attempt to quickly rebuild the depleted United States Army.
Recruitment was done in Pennsylvania. The Regiment fought in eight battles during the War of 1812.
Its final engagement of the war was the seige and assault of Fort Erie in August and September 1814.
Inactivation of the Regiment was done after the War of 1812, by an Act of Congress approved March 3, 1815,
when its assets were incorporated into the 2nd Infantry Regiment.

The 22nd Infantry was technically re-constituted on 3 May 1861 in the Regular Army as Companies A and I, 2nd Battalion, l3th Infantry.
It organized in May 1865 at Camp Dennison, OH. It reorganized and was redesignated on 21 September 1866 as Companies A and I, 22nd Infantry.

Companies A and I, 22nd Infantry consolidated on 4 May 1869 and the consolidated unit was designated as Company A, 22nd Infantry.
The Regiment was brought up to strength, as the remaining Companies were filled and designated.
The 22nd Infantry served in five major campaigns of the Indian Wars of the late 19th century.
It was the first American Army unit to set foot on Cuban soil in the Spanish American War and fought with distinction at the battle of Santiago.
It served in six campaigns during the years 1899-1905 in the Philippine Insurrection and Moro Wars.

The Regiment was stationed at the Presidio in California, and served in the relief efforts during the San Francisco earthquake of 1906.
It served in Alaska from 1908-1910.

From 1910 to 1917 the 22nd Infantry saw duty along the Mexican border. From 1917-1922 the Regiment was assigned to Fort Jay
and other forts in New York, and guarded the Port of New York during the First World War.

The 22nd Infantry was assigned on 24 March 1923 to the 4th Division [later redesignated as the 4th Infantry Division].
The 1st Battalion was inactivated on 30 June 1927 at Fort McPherson, GA.

The 1st Battalion reactivated on 1 June 1940 at Fort McClellan, AL, as part of the 4th Infantry Division.
During World War II the 22nd Infantry landed on D-Day at Utah beach, and fought through five campaigns into Germany itself.
It was inactivated on 1 March l946 at Camp Butner, NC.

The 22nd Infantry was reactivated 15 July l947 at Fort Ord, CA. As part of the 4th Infantry Division the 22nd served in Germany from 1951-1956.
It reorganized and was redesignated on 1 April 1957 as Headquarters and Headquarters Company,
1st Battle Group, 22nd Infantry and remained assigned to the 4th Infantry Division (with its organic elements being concurrently constituted and activated).
It was reorganized and redesignated on 1 October l963 as the 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry.

The Regulars of 1/22nd Infantry arrived in Vietnam in 1966, fighting in thirteen campaigns of that war.
Three Battalions of the 22nd originally went to VN with the 4th Division, but the 2nd & 3rd Battalions were soon transferred to the 25th Division.

The 1st Battalion remained with the 4th Division until the Division left VN, and then came under command of IFFV (1st Field Force).
1st Battalion earned the distinction of being the longest serving unit of the 22nd in Vietnam, 1966-1972.
During the Tet Offensive, the 1st Battalion of the 22nd earned the Valorous Unit Award, during the fighting in the Provincial Capital of Kontum.
Throughout its tenure in VN, the 1st Battalion performed its missions as a true "straight-leg" Light Infantry Battalion.
In late 1970, after the Battalion was pulled out of the jungle of the Central Highlands of II Corps, the Republic of Vietnam awarded the 1st Battalion,
for the second time during its service in Vietnam, the RVN Cross of Gallantry Unit Citation, many years before the Republic of Vietnam gave this
award as a blanket award to anyone who served in VN.

1st Battalion left Vietnam in 1972 and was stationed at Fort Carson, CO as part of the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized).
It inactivated on August 1984 at Fort Carson, CO and was relieved from its assignment to the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized).

It reactivated in May 1986 at Fort Drum, NY and was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division (Light).
1st Battalion served in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in Florida, saw duty in Somalia
and was instrumental in returning President Aristede to power in Haiti in the 1990's.

Relieved in February 1996 from this assignment to the 10th Mountain Division (Light),
the 1st Battalion was reassigned to the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized) at Fort Hood, TX.

1-22 Infantry became part of the Army's Test Division, and was known as Force XXI, experimenting with advanced technology
and tactics, evaluating and adpapting them to change the Army into a twenty-first century military organization.

The 1st Battalion became the Army's first all-digital Battalion, and took that technology with it to Iraq
during Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003-2004. The 1st Battalion returned to Iraq for its second tour of duty there
from 2005-2006. In March of 2008 1st Battalion served its third tour in Iraq, returning to Fort Hood in March of 2009.

In the summer of 2009 1st Battalion 22nd Infantry moved to their new duty station at Fort Carson, Colorado, with 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized)
in preparation for their deployment to Afghanistan.

From August 2010 to June 2011 the Battalion served in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, adding another combat theater to their
long history of overseas deployments. The Battalion returned to Fort Carson, where they served and continued to train,
maintaining a state of readiness should the nation require their service anywhere in the world.

From February to October 2013 1st Battalion deployed to Camp Buehring, Kuwait.

A New Name

At the outset of War in America in 1812, the Regiment was sent to the Niagara frontier in New York and points west, participating in the more or less continuous combat in that theater of war, including several attempts to invade British Canada. When peace was declared in 1815, it was largely because the powers of Europe were exhausted by 25 years of war with France and Napoleon. The United States Army returned to a peacetime establishment at the end of the conflict. That peacetime establishment required a force reduction (a “downsizing” in modern terms) of more than thirty regiments in the infantry alone. The forty-six regiments of infantry were, in 1815, consolidated into eight, mostly by combining the troops from five or more regiments into one unit and then re-numbering the surviving organizations. The old (pre-1815) 1st Infantry was the oldest unit used to make up the new (post-1815) 3rd Infantry, which created the direct lineage as the Army’s oldest active infantry unit. The commanders of the new units and their numbers were chosen on the basis of seniority. The first commander of the new 3rd Infantry was Colonel John Miller, previously of the 17th Infantry and third in seniority in the Army. The number of the unit became the “3” as a result of Miller’s seniority.

The westward expansion of the United States during the hundred years after 1784 was not peaceful. Old Guardsmen were engaged in the same exploration, peacemaking, peacekeeping, building, and combat missions as the rest of the Army. The Old Guard was responsible for building many of the forts of the west, some of which became cities as settlement continued. Fort Dearborn eventually became the city of Chicago. Fort Howard contributed to the development of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Jefferson Barracks, Missouri was built in what became the city of St. Louis. In Kansas, the regimental commander, Colonel Henry Leavenworth, chose the site of the fort which bears his name. Camp Supply, Oklahoma, is now a state historic site. Many other posts, forts, or fortifications were built or manned by The Old Guard.

After the war of 1812, many of the traditional patterns of Army life in the west, and many of the traditional missions of the Regular Army in American life began to be evident. Serving on the frontiers, the Army built most of its own posts, most sized for only a few companies operating independently of their regimental headquarters. As the only body of men under the control of the government with a clear mandate to use force to implement the national program of resettlement of the Indians, the Army was central to the policy of gaining military control while protecting the Indians from unscrupulous or terrified settlers. One of the most difficult of these situations concerned the Republic of Texas, its border with the United States, and the adjacent Indian Territory. Through the 1820’s and 1830’s, The Old Guard was stationed in Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri, guarding in depth the border with the Texas Republic and the Indian Territory.

In April 1840 the entire 3rd Infantry Regiment, numbering around 690 men, was sent to Florida to participate in the war against the Seminole Indians. The three-year conflict ended by negotiation in time for the Regiment to be sent again to St. Louis as instructors and demonstration troops in the School for Brigade Drill at Jefferson Barracks in 1843. It was during this period that the first recorded instance occurred of the Regiment earning the nickname “buff sticks,” after a flat stick of wood with a soft piece of leather attached that was commonly used to shine metal buttons and other uniform parts. In 1844, the Regiment moved again to the Texas border, to Louisiana as part of the “Army of Observation,” protecting the border from the Texans and Mexicans. On the border, the Regulars created “Camps of Instruction” to increase the level of combat readiness of the Army as a whole. They were soon to need it.


The Longhorn baseball program has been remarkably stable over the last century. Over a 105-year period (1911-2016), it had only four full-time coaches—Billy Disch (1911–1939), Bibb Falk (1940–1967), Cliff Gustafson (1968–1996), and Augie Garrido (1997–2016). David Pierce, previously head coach at Tulane University, was hired as Texas' fifth head coach on June 29, 2016.

The Longhorns have won national titles in 1949, 1950, 1975, 1983, 2002, and 2005.

The early years (1894–1910) Edit

The Texas Longhorns baseball team started in 1894, with the first game in 1895. Records from the first two years are incomplete. The first collegiate victory was over Add-Ran College, what is today Texas Christian University, on April 21, 1897. Seven different managers, including some that were also the school's football coach, led the team. Four times, the team won a conference title, including one in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and three in the Southwestern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The team played its home games in the first Clark Field during this time.

William J. "Billy" Disch era (1911–1939) Edit

In 1911, Billy Disch took over the reins of the program. Disch retired following the 1939 season. During this time, he led the Longhorns to 22 conference titles, with two in the Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association and 20 in the Southwest Conference. This included a run of 10 consecutive conference titles from 1913 to 1922. Disch won 465 collegiate games during his tenure with the Longhorns. In 1928, the team moved to the second Clark Field, which was famous for its limestone cliff and goat path in left-center field.

Bibb Falk era (1940–1967) Edit

In 1940, former Longhorn baseball and major league outfielder Bibb Falk became the head coach. Except for a three-year period from 1943 to 1945, during which the team was led by assistant football coach Blair Cherry, Falk coached the team until 1967. Under Falk's guidance, the Longhorns won 20 Southwest Conference titles the Longhorns won two conference titles under Cherry. Under Falk, Texas won its first two College World Series championships (in 1949 and 1950). The Longhorns won 434 collegiate games during his tenure.

Cliff Gustafson era (1968–1996) Edit

Falk retired after the 1967 season and was succeeded by one of his former players, Cliff Gustafson. During his time in Austin, Gustafson led the Longhorns to 22 conference titles, 11 conference tournament championships, and College World Series championships in 1975 and 1983. Texas won 1,427 collegiate games during his tenure. In 1975, the school moved from the second Clark Field into the new Disch-Falk Field, which was named for Billy Disch and Bibb Falk.

Augie Garrido era (1997–2016) Edit

After Cliff Gustafson retired in 1996, Augie Garrido took over the helm at Texas. During his tenure, the school won seven Big 12 Conference titles, four conference tournament championships, and two national championships, in 2002 and 2005. Augie died March 15, 2018.

David Pierce era (2016–present) Edit

On June 29, 2016, it was announced that David Pierce (previously head coach at Tulane and Sam Houston State) would take over being head coach at the Longhorns after the announcement of Augie Garrido's resignation. [ citation needed ]

Through 2018 Coach Pierce's teams have appeared in the NCAA baseball tournament in all seven years he has been a head coach (2012–2018), including 2017–2018 with the Longhorns.

In 2018, the Texas Longhorns won the Big 12 Championship for the first time since 2011. In the 2018 NCAA tournament they advanced to and hosted an NCAA Super Regional for the first time since 2008 by defeating Texas Southern, Texas A&M and Indiana University in the NCAA Austin regional. They defeated Tennessee Tech in three games to advance to the 2018 College World Series.

In May 1998, Company B was deployed again to Bosnia-Herzegovina in support of Operation Joint Endeavor, Operation Joint Forge (OJE/OJF). In 2001, elements were deployed again to Macedonia and Kosovo. In March 2003, Company C, 2nd Battalion deployed with HQ V Corps to Kuwait and participated in the initial invasion of Iraq. The rest of the 2nd Battalion and 1st Battalion deployed to Iraq in late April 2003 as part of 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division. The "Regulars" arrived in Baghdad in May 2003 and were the first to relieve elements of the 3rd Infantry Division in Baghdad. The 1st and 2nd Battalions deployed again in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in November 2005 and April 2008. The 4th Battalion, 6th Infantry deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom/New Dawn from May 2009 to May 2010. In August of 2011, the 4th Battalion deployed to Al-Asad and FOB Hammer in Iraq in support of Operation New Dawn. They returned in December of that year when the U.S and Iraqi government failed to come to an agreement concerning soldiers diplomatic immunity, making the Regulars one of the last regiments to withdraw from the Iraq.

Throughout the ten turbulent years of Texas independence its military was engaged in constant warfare against enemies within and without. Its regulars were backed up by a militia described as "the most formidable, for their numbers, in the world." Contrary to the image projected by Hollywood and most historians, even in Texas, they were smartly uniformed and equipped with the latest in weaponry. What did these long-forgotten uniforms look like? Texas insignia and flags? Writer-artist-historian Bruce Marshall has discovered the answers in archives in Texas and Mexico, in old diaries and letters and sketches by those who wore or saw them. With his internationally-honored art he has recreated the uniforms in twenty-six full color illustrations, supplemented by fourteen photographs -.including the only two known of uniformed officers of the Texas army and navy.

With his award-winning writing skill Marshall vividly backgrounds the intrigues, triumphs and tragedies of this dramatic decade of high adventure - a decade vital to understanding the Texas mystique.

Bruce Marshall is an award-winning writer and artist whose work has been internationally published and exhibited. His special expertise is regional history, particularly the Republic of Texas, the role of Texas in the Civil War, and the Texas Rangers. Among the honors this has brought him are several unusual titles: Artist of the 65th Legislature of Texas, Artist in Residence of the Texas Navy, and two knighthoods from European royaIty. A fourth-generation Texan, he lives on the historic Eanes-Marshall Ranch near Austin with his wife, two college student sons and a huge, shambling dog of uncertain ancestry.

Newman, Texas, bar regulars watch city grow closer

The former stagecoach stop in the northeast corner of El Paso was designated as a townsite in 1922, but never attracted a population of its own.

It’s a place where people work and drink, but no one lives. The El Paso Electric Co.’s Newman power plant has about 45 employees, and the rest of Newman’s “residents” are the regulars of the town’s two bars: the Last Roundup Bar and Club 54.

“This is an out-of-the-way place where you can relax, play a game of pool. Police don’t bother you,” said Robert Kindrick, a Chaparral, N.M. resident who comes to Cub 54 several times a week.

However, civilization has begun to rear its municipal head in Newman, which is about 20 miles from Downtown El Paso. The state has paved a new road just north of Club 54 – and that angers some of the bar’s clients, including Doug Mills, a bar regular for almost 20 years.

Mills, 40, said people often use the discarded movie theater seats outside the north wall during the warm evenings to down a few beers and watch a few trains chug along.

“That was a time when ‘country’ meant something. Now it’s being threatened,” he said in reference to the paved Second Street, a frontage road that will connect U.S. 54 with Chaparral.

“I’ll throw up on the fist car (from the frontage road) I see drive up here,” Mills said.

The Texas Highway department completed the paving project recently, said Steve Coleman, an urban planner for the city of El Paso.

Club 54 co-owner Dick Selmon isn’t quite sure what effect the new road will have on his business or his property values, but he’s not upset about it.

“I have no idea what’s going to happen, so I’ll just sit back and see what comes,” he said.

When Newman was designated as a townsite, Coleman said, the initial intention was to keep it a separate town. The town wasn’t considered art of El Paso until it was annexed in October 1978.

Some of the last original buildings include the two bars, which were built in the 1940s when Newman was a railroad community. The town was named after rancher Henry L. Newman, who owned the area in the late 1800s.

One of the people who worked on the railroad track gangs in the 1940s was Northeast city Rep. Arves Jones Sr.

“There’s not as much there now as there was then. There used to be a post office there, but now they just have some rinky-dink bars,” he said.

Bartenders at both bars claim about 30 to 50 regular who visit the bars at least once a week.

One of the semi-regulars at the Last Roundup is Don Haskins, head basketball coach at the University of Texas at El Paso.

“He gets a low-neck Bud,” said Ruth Higgens, who said the bar has a family atmosphere.

Nobody bothers me here. Besides, (coming here) is better than sitting at home watching television,” she said.

Other than Haskins, the bar’s main claims to fame are brief appearances in “Bad News Bears” (1976) and a Clint Eastwood film.

“I don’t remember which one,” said Sue Waldroup, owner of the Last Roundup Bar.

The bars don’t get a lot of business from the employees of the Newman Power Plant because the plant is somewhat isolated from the community, said Carlos Samaniego, a plant shift supervisor.

The Czech Pastry That Took Texas By Storm, And Keeps Gaining Strength

Ask any displaced Texan what they miss from home and they'll likely list a few items: brisket, football, higher speed limits, tacos and kolaches.

Now, if you're lucky enough to have had a kolache, you know it's a Texas staple, but if you haven't had one, you're probably still trying to figure out how to pronounce the word. It's "ko-lah-chee."

Kolaches are Czech pastries made of a yeast dough and usually filled with fruit, but sometimes cheese. The ultra-traditional flavors — such as poppy seed, apricot, prune and a sweet-but-simple farmer's cheese — can be traced back to the pastry's Eastern European origin.

As Czech immigrants founded communities during the 1880s in rural Texas, later known as the Texas Czech Belt, the flavors and fillings evolved. Pineapple, blueberry, strawberry and cream cheese are just a sampling of flavors available today.

Mimi Montgomery Irwin owns and operates The Village Bakery in West, Texas. In a town full of Czech immigrants, her father, Wendel Montgomery, opened the bakery in 1952 on a dare from a high school football coach and local priest, she says.

"People thought he was crazy. At that time, in our town of West, it would be like . selling ice to Eskimos, because everyone made them. But something interesting was happening in society," Irwin says.

Kolaches, a staple among these Czech communities, appeared at church dinners, bazaars and family gatherings, but were fairly unknown to outsiders. Irwin's father found a market in traveling salesmen as they stopped in for food and gas. The pastries soon became a favorite of passersby.

While traditional kolaches are fruit-filled, a Texan twist evolved when they were made with sausage, cheese and jalapeños. Irwin, a self-proclaimed kolache purist, maintains that these are not true kolaches, but rather what her father called a "klobasniki."

Over time, kolaches became more commercialized in Texas, often paired with doughnut shops and made with doughnut dough. Filling them with meat is a misunderstanding that Irwin says she tries to correct.

"I try to help them understand that when they ask for a kolache, they should not be getting meat. And in many of the chains, that's what's being passed off as a kolache," Irwin says.

For Czech communities outside of Texas, Irwin is right. In Iowa, where there is also a large Czech community, kolaches can be found in grocery stores, but they're most definitely filled with fruit, not meat. There are other differences: Iowa's kolaches have a rounder shape, with the fruit filling covering a larger area than their square-shaped Texas counterparts.

As small communities continue to use food to spread culture, big companies, like The Kolache Factory, which is headquartered in Texas, have started to build franchises in other states.

At the same time, kolache recipes have been continually passed down through generations. Some Texans of Czech descent, like Chris Svetlik, have started smaller shops like Republic Kolache in Washington, D.C., after realizing how many people missed the familiarity of this comfort food.

"They grew up there, they spent some time there, they did military service there. You'd see a lot of folks that would literally wear their Texan pride — they'd put on their hat or their shirt of where they went to school or a local Texas chain," he says. "A lot of our customers met one another in line and had good conversations. That's been really cool to see, not just seeing our regulars, but having them get to know one another."

Republic Kolache started serving pastries, both sweet and savory, to people in the D.C. area in August 2015. Svetlik and his partner, Brian Stanford, were greeted with more demand than they could meet as hundreds lined up for a taste of home. And as the company expanded and partnered with coffee shops and grocers like Whole Foods, it wasn't just Texans who were lining up.

As the presence and popularity of kolaches continues to expand, Svetlik says, it doesn't matter if someone has heard of the food or tasted it before.

"Even if the name is kind of funny — and maybe folks have never heard of it — it is the time-honored tradition of dough with stuff in it, which is quite familiar. It's not too hard to understand or get on board with," Svetlik says.

And Now What?

Thanks to the efforts of Flipper's descendants, the Army Board for the Correction of Military Records reviewed his case in 1976. They found that in similar cases of the time involving white officers, punishments had usually been fines, reprimands, or rank reductions, but not dismissal from service. Citing racial prejudice as an element in Flipper's excessive punishment, the board exonerated Flipper and awarded him a retroactive honorable discharge. On February 19, 1999, President Bill Clinton granted 2nd Lieutenant Henry O. Flipper, 10th Cavalry Buffalo Soldier, a full pardon.

Henry O. Flipper's story is just one of many in the history of the Buffalo Soldiers. After leaving the Texas forts in the 1890s, Buffalo Soldier cavalry and infantry units went on to serve with distinction in the Spanish-American and Philippine wars, the U.S.-Mexico border wars, and both world wars. The last African American Buffalo Soldier regiment was deactivated during the Korean War in response to President Truman's Executive Order #9981 to desegregate military units. By 1951, all Buffalo Solider troops were integrated into other U.S. Army regiments.

"We are home now though our flame flickers low. Will you fan it with the winds of freedom, or will you smother it with the sands of humiliation? Will it be that we fought for the lesser of two evils? Or is there this freedom and happiness for all men?"
