In My Mind's Eye
Mission San Francisco de la Tejas was founded in Texas in 1690. This new world Spanish settlement was hindered by disease and drought. Native
Nabedache Indians believed the mission was the root cause of their troubles and forced the Roman Catholic priests to flee to Monclova, Mexico.
