Gov. Greg Abbott recently signed into law the “1836 Project” to promote Texas history. Author Bryan Burrough joins host Krys Boyd to talk about arguably the state’s most famous story – The Alamo – and why its role in preserving slavery is often written out of Texas lore. His book, written with co-authors Chris Tomlinson and Jason Stanford, is “Forget the Alamo: The Rise and Fall of an American Myth.”
