March is “Texas History Month”
Make plans now to go all Texas, all the time, as March signals “Texas History Month”. We do things BIG here, and that means celebrations will be plentiful statewide.
On the motion of Sam Houston, Texas adopted “The Unanimous Declaration of Independence, by the Delegates of the People of Texas, in General Convention, at the Town of Washington, on the Second Day of March 1836″.
Houston embraced politics upon arriving here in 1832, where he served as the President of the Texas Republic, along with being the lead man of the Texas Revolutionary Army. He was also buddies with some guy calling himself, Thomas Rusk. Sound familiar?
Good ole ‘Sam’ passed on ’63 (1863, that is), and his legacy is felt all across “The Lonestar State”, from street names and monuments scattered about, to the city and university bearing his name.
So, get out and party likes it’s 1999…..I mean…..1836!
