Good News for Texas

The Texas Tribune: The San Antonio Missions, the Alamo and other historic Texas shrines, have attained the status of other internationally recognized landmarks such as the Taj Mahal and the Great Barrier Reef. 
. . . .
The Texas shrines are the twenty-third World Historic Site in the United States, including landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall. In addition to the Alamo, the shrines include missions at Concepcion, San Jose, San Juan and Espada, all in San Antonio.

I was just reading a newspaper article that said there were only three UNESCO World Heritage sites that were man made in the U.S. The Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall and the Rotunda at UVA. So thes Texas site about double that number. More U.S. Sites should apply for recognition.
