Plot Synopsis

TEXAS RISING is an eight-part series that details the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers. In 1836, west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West and the Texas frontier was viewed as hell on earth. Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes -- no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna. President Jackson avoided direct U.S. involvement, unwilling to risk open war against Mexico as he continued to monitor the political situation. But Jackson was a mentor to and admirer of the heroic General Sam Houston and he realized the fate of Texas would profoundly influence the future of the United States. General Houston, the rag tag Rangers and the legendary Yellow Rose of Texas, lead this story of the human will to win against insurmountable odds. At the end, the Texas flags stood tall and victorious, claiming a piece of history for all eternity.
On Monday, June 15, 2015 from 9-11pm ET/PT, History premieres the finale of TEXAS RISING. In the series ender, "The Rise of the Republic," the Texas Rangers return to Victoria to celebrate their victory over Mexico and Houston is encouraged to take an important role in the future of the newly independent territory.
