My apologies to all.
Happy Birthday, Texas!
March 2, 1836
While battle raged at the Alamo 177 years ago, a free Republic was born when delegates from across Texas met to declare their independence from a Mexican government that had “ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived.”
The men who declared Texas Independence knew with every fiber of their being what the price of liberty was, and that same appreciation of liberty still guides the Lone Star State today. We owe it to those who sacrificed it all to fight back whenever freedom is threatened.
I hope you have a happy Texas Independence Day, remember the brave Texians who laid it all on the line, and always stand for liberty.
