NStephen F. Austin is known as the Father of Texas. He brought many colonists from the United States, and throughout the revolutionary period, he was a voice for peace and a great support to his fellow Texans. Texas would not have such a rich mix of population today, and might not even be a part of the United States, if it weren’t for Austin’s dedication to his colony.
