Rumors of pirates hiding out in the area are true. Taxes were the main reason battles erupted as  Mexico made agreements not to tax the local settlers then attempted to levy payments.  When a settler refused and was jailed word got out and the famous 112 Texans led by Stephen F. Austin headed to help. This particular conflict was the beginning of the war of independence from Mexico and it happened right here in what we now call Surfside Beach.
