Title: The Yellow Rose of Texas
Comments: The Emily Morgan hotel was named after a beautiful mulatto woman who was "keeping company" with Mexican General Santa Anna when Sam Houston launched the successful attack that won Texas independence at San Jacinto. The story goes that she was actually a Texas spy, sent in to make love to the General so that he would be distracted. She was actually the "Yellow Rose of Texas" that is described in the famous song.
Location: San Antonio
