Military Monday - The Last Survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto

Alfonso Steele - Last Survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto (Texas). This posting is in loving memory of my dear friend, Dixie Hall Bennett, who was a proud descendant of Alfonso.

Take a mountain man hundreds of miles from civilization, add a bear, subtract his gun, and what do you have? Hugh Glass, and one epic tale of survival.

Famous mountain man Hugh Glass being mauled by a bear. Hugh Glass' harrowing story was the inspiration for the film "The Revenant.

HUGH GLASS (c.1780-1833) was an American fur trapper and frontiersman noted for his exploits in the American West during the first third of the 19th century. He is famous as an explorer of the watershed of the Upper Missouri River in present day North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana. Glass was famed, most of all, as a frontier folk hero for his legendary cross-country trek after being mauled by a grizzly bear (drawing is not Hugh, no portrait has ever been found).
