The marriage in 1829 of Sam Houston, the thirty-six-year-old governor of Tennessee, to Eliza Allen, the twenty-year-old daughter of a prominent landholder, lasted only eleven weeks. The ensuing scandal caused Houston to resign his office in disgrace, leave Tennessee to live with the Cherokees in Arkansas, and eventually to go to Texas and mold its history.
