Here is Sammy framed...

As elsewhere stated, this is a portrait of Sam Houston. Fluent in Cherokee. Won independence from Mexico for Texas. Ran for President of Texas against Mirabeau B. Lamar. Whose camp stated, "Houston is a drunk." To which Houston's camp replied, "A drunk Houston is better than a sober Lamar." As Governor of Texas, his political career abruptly ended with the Civil War - when he refused to join the Confederacy.
