History of the Jane Long flag
Jane Long is known as the "Mother of Texas" because of her endurance and resilience against the early Texas frontier and its harsh winters, which were much colder than in modern times. Jane Long deliver her own baby daughter, Mary James Long, during the winter of 1821, which was one of the coldest of all winters in Texas. Jane Long was the wife of Dr. James Long, who is best know for his two expeditions into the Spanish controlled Texas territory in an effort to free Texas from Spain. It is widely accepted among historians, that Dr. Long brought the solid red flag with a large, white, five pointed star in the center that was made for him by his wife, Jane, specifically for this 1st expedition and is touted as being the 1st lone star flag to ever be flown over Texas soil. The 1st attempt, involved and invasion of Nacogdoches which began in June of 1819 with about 120 men, which grew to around 300 by July, but was was short lived, as the Spanish army was able to drive them back across the Louisiana border by the end of November of that same year. James Long then took the Jane Long flag to New Orleans where he incorporated the red background and white star into the canton of his new flag, known as the James Long expedition flag. The new flag featured 13 red and white stripes, in an effort to attract more Americans to the cause. Dr. Long was subsequently killed during the second attempt to wrest Texas away from Spain. Jane Long never remarried, despite numerous proposals from many notable early Texas men. She lived out her life in Texas where she died on December 30th, 1880, at age 82. She is buried next to President Mirabeau B. Lamar in the Richmond, Texas cemetery.
