Texas Our Texas




Today is Texas Independence Day!  184 years ago, a group of 59 delegates convened, drew up and signed the Texas Declaration of Independence thus declaring the independence of the Republic of Texas from Mexico.  



When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression.

When the Federal Republican Constitution of their country, which they have sworn to support, no longer has a substantial existence, and the whole nature of their government has been forcibly changed, without their consent, from a restricted federative republic, composed of sovereign states, to a consolidated central military despotism, in which every interest is disregarded but that of the army and the priesthood, both the eternal enemies of civil liberty, the everready minions of power, and the usual instruments of tyrants. . . . . . . .



They met at Washington-on-the-Brazos and chose David Burnet as provisional president and Sam Houston as commander in chief of all Texan forces.

Texas remained a Republic from October 2, 1835, to February 19, 1846, when it became the 28th state.



Okay – history lesson over.

Y’all have a good day now!

  1. Happy Texas Independence Day! When it did become a US state, I bet Texas wasn't thrilled to have parts of its territory lopped off to join other states, was it?

  2. They are showing off the guns at the Alamo today. They particularly showed off a long rifle from Pennsylvania/Kentucky. It was a very elegant rifle. They also fired a few of them.
