Restored by the Kathryn Stoner O'Connor Foundation in the 1960s, Presidio La Bahia at Goliad is considered the world's finest example of a Spanish frontier fort. It is also where Col. James W. Fannin and his men were massacred during the Texas Revolution in 1936, ranking it with the Alamo as being among the most historic and storied sites in Texas. Moved to Goliad in 1749, the history of the fort goes back to 1721 when the Spanish first established it in present Victoria County on the site of the French explorer Rene Robert Cavalier, Sieur del la Salle's ill-fated Fort St. Louis. Henry Wolff, Jr. is a longtime Texas journalist who has been a columnist for The Victoria Advocate, Texas' second oldest newspaper, since 1979, but had also covered activities relating to the restoration of Presidio La Bahia in the 1960s as a reporter.
