Philip Nolan

Philip Nolan (177121 mars 1801) était marchand de chevaux et flibustier. Il vécut à Natchez (Mississippi) et dans le Texas espagnol. Protégé par le général James Wilkinson, il voyagea pour la première fois au Texas en 1791[1]. Il entra en contact avec les Indiens Comanches et Taovayas, qui lui fournirent des chevaux mustangs. Ses observations servirent à dessiner la frontière entre le Texas et la Louisiane vers 1804[1]. Il fut tué par des soldats espagnols en 1801.
