We are proud to announce the launch of the Lost Texas Roads website.  Every person and place deserves their own history, and Lost Texas Roads chronicles a history that you can touch; history that exists around you…it is your history.” said Regina Kosub.

 

Through countless presentations and numerous articles, Allen and Regina Kosub have connected local history to the great movements of American History. Their work has uncovered lost places, people, and historic events in old Bexar County and the area east of San Antonio. Their writings have connected the local history of East Bexar County to a larger historical context; from the lost Old Gonzales Road related to the Siege of Bexar and the Alamo, through the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the cattle drives.

 

Allen Kosub described the process for preparing the website’s content. “As historians, we believe that local history requires the same rigorous process that is brought to the grand topics of history. Primary sources and official records are essential to creating the narratives that stand the test of time.  The stories from families and communities, when supported by the historical record, are woven into their narratives and provide a local perspective and flavor.
