Justice Ken Wise and the Republic of Texas Secret Court
The battle of San Jacinto gave Texas its independence, but also an international crisis. Needing to act quickly, President David Burnet issued an executive order creating a judicial system. The emergency was resolved, in part, but that wasn’t the end of the story for Burnet’s court. In this Texas Talks, Justice Ken Wise will reveal some information not previously known about the secret court of the Republic of Texas. Justice Wise sits on the 14th Court of Appeals in Houston and is the creator and host of the popular Texas history podcast Wise About Texas, which is heard by over 1.3 million people in 152 countries around the world.
