Happy Independence, Tejas!

Micki Allen

Today  marks the 180th anniversary of Texas independence. On this date in 1836, 59 delegates crowded into the lil’ Brazos-river town of Washington and unanimously passed a declaration (penned by George Campbell Childress) that proclaimed Texas a republic independent from Mexico.

Check out the The Unanimous Declaration of Independence made by the
Delegates of the People of Texas in General Convention at the Town of Washington
on the 2nd day of March 1836, aka the Texas Declaration of Independence, right here.
