Where was the birth of the term, "Maverick?"
Where was the birth of the term, "Maverick"? At the historic Beauregard Ranch in Wilson County and it is now included in the San Antonio Conservation Society's amazing website, "Historic Farm and Ranch Complexes in Bexar and Surrounding Counties" thanks to WCHS contributors, Allen and Regina Kosub, and Gene Maeckle. The ranch predates the formation of Wilson and Karnes Counties!
