by T.G. Webb


SKU: 6806 Category:


Baylor University and Texas A&M University always had a fierce football rivalry that one time spilled over into a tragedy as passions overflowed. During halftime of the October 30, 1926 football game a deadly riot erupted between the two student bodies that resulted in the death of Texas A&M senior cadet Charles Sessums.  Circumstances were vague as to the incident and was considered a “cold case” as rumors spread of a murder. The person responsible was never identified. The author has done an excellent job of researching this heartbreaking case and unravels the myths surrounding it. Illustrated. 6 x 9 Size.

Foreword by John A. Adams Jr.
