REPUBLIC of TEXAS SOUVENIR FANTASY SET of 6According to the Texas Militia, a new republic had been formed with its own presidency, courts, cabinet, currency and web-site (December 27, 1995). Articles about this break – away ‘state’ appeared in both the domestic and international press. The center of this movementwas in the town of Fort Davis (named for theconfederate – Jefferson Davis) . The group’s antics included trying to kick out Texas Governor G. W. Bush and filing claims at the International Court of Justice. They were later raided by the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). Several members ofthe group were eventually captured and at least one was killed. It is highly doubtful that the money called the Pesodoll or anything like itcirculated, but it features the heroes of early Texas; Sam Houston, Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, plus the Alamo, the Mountains of the area, a Texas Ranger on horseback etc. These 6 ( 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 & 100 ) measure approximately 7 x 3 1/2 inches.
