    1874 - In what is now Hutchinson County, a party of about 700 Plains Indians attacked a buffalo hunters' camp. The battle became known as the Second Battle of Adobe Walls. The siege lasted several days.

    1918 - Hortense Ward became the first woman to register to vote in Harris County. She was also the first woman admitted to the Texas bar in 1910.

    1957 - More than 500 people were killed when Hurricane Audrey hit the coastal area of Louisiana and Texas.

    Hortense?????
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
