"I've been pottering around painting up bits and pieces in between Spring cleaning and walking the dog and this couple of figures have been undercoated for a awhile – the depict General Sam Houston (right) and his pal Moseley Baker having a 'little drop of something' perhaps just before the Battle of San Jacinto , the are by Boot Hill Miniatures and capture the look of Sam in his younger days . He was always a controversial character , beating a political rival up with his walking stick , his behaviour before the battle is still mired in controversy (did he want to fight or not ?) , he lived many years amongst the Cherokee Indians and at one time had an Indian wife , the called him 'Black Raven' and also 'Big Drunk' because of his drinking habit . Admittedly he looks hesitant about having a glass in the above diorama"
