A headline in The Kerrville Daily Times on Thursday, Sept. 9, announced, “Local historian enters culture war.” The subject of the item bearing the headline was the appointment of Dr. Don Frazier of Schreiner University to the 1836 Project committee.

The item reported that the 1836 Project is tasked with “promoting the greatness of Texas and its people.” Referring to the project as “culture war” is unfortunate because the term incites division, detracts from the stated purpose of the project and diminishes the significance of Dr. Frazier’s appointment.
