I realize the photography leaves something to be desired (taken out of the window of the car traveling 70mph on the highway!), but you get the idea. Whitney and I visited Sam Houston State University on our continuing tour of Texas schools. This statue is of course the namesake of this school. He stands along I-45, and is more than a little creepy when you come around the bend in the road, and there he is. This is reportedly the largest statue of an American hero in the country and stands 65 feet tall. In Texas we believe bigger is definitely better!!! Haha!
