All of Mr. Borroel’s works are works of originality, all official documents that are presented are presented for the first time in English. They have been laying around since the war, yet so-called historians have always ignored them to present their own slanted side of the conflict. Mr. Borroel does not intend to ignore them. Modest works are located in many Texan libraries and universities and in many other states. Some have been published in the Alamo Journal where Mr. Borroel has written articles throughout the years. An example is John Dunn, the director of the San Jacinto Battlefield was surprised that Mr. Borroel was able to find notarized accounts of the Massacre by four Mexican soldiers after they had returned to Mexico in July of 1836. And it goes on. Mr. Borroel who is well known in Texan circles so he has been told knows most of the writers of books on Texas history, where he has gotten Mexican documents from them for some of his works; where one another help each other in this field.
