On October 5, 2012, Humanities Texas held a workshop at San Antonio's Witte Museum covering Spanish Texas through the Civil War.

Workshop faculty included former state historian Jésus F. de la Teja (Texas State University), Juliana Barr (University of Florida), Walter L. Buenger (Texas A&M University), Caroline Castillo Crimm (Sam Houston State University), and Robert Wooster (Texas A&M Corpus Christi). Educational specialists from the Witte also introduced teachers to the museum's new Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg South Texas Heritage Center.
