By Eliza Griffin Johnston

In the 1840s and 1850s, Eliza Griffin Johnston created numerous beautiful watercolor images of Texas wild flowers to give to her husband, General Albert Sidney Johnston, for this birthday. Many years later in 1894, Rebecca Jane Fisher, of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, began acquiring artifacts for a museum dedicated to Texas' years as a Republic. Eliza donated the book of wildflowers she had made for her husband (who died at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862) which remained in an Austin bank vault for many years. In 2008, the images were digitalized and the members wanted the beauty of the book to be shared with others. Features more than 100 watercolor paintings and a description of each flower.
