Better late than never…

05 Mar

My apologies to all.

Happy Birthday, Texas!

March 2, 1836Texas five-dollar note

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.

        Finding one would be the trick! No telling what it would be worth. I have a Confederate Five Dollar bill issued in 1864 at Richmond Virginia but have no idea what it is worth…it’s priceless to me!

          I’d take either one. They have to be worth more than the monopoly money we have today. The United States currency is being devalued more every day.
