Wednesday, March 2, 2016 – Texas Independence Day – Happy Birthday, Texas 1836-2016 – The Texas Revolution in 250 Words or Less or Don’t Mess with Texas
Here’s What I’m Thinking or rather singing.
Texas Our Texas – All hail the mighty state…
I love to sing the state song. I wish it was sung at more events.
Texas declared its Independence from Mexico today at nearby Washington-on-the Brazos and The Republic of Texas was established. Meanwhile in San Antonio Davy Crockett looked at William B. Travis and said “We’re gonna need a lot more men.”
But as we all remember, the troops never came. Mexican General Santa Anna’s thousands breeched the walls and they were ordered to “give them no quarter” or kill them all.
It all ends with the WORLD CHANGING – Battle of San Jacinto. This battle changed the events and shape of the world. For those who enjoy alternate history, what if the Texians had lost at San Jacinto?
In its rich history the state has flown under six different flags representing six different sovereign countries. If anyone tries to take of any one those six flags away, I will fight you to the death. It will be Victory or Death just as at The Alamo. You will need to Come and Take It.
So here’s to the men (and women) of the Battles of Medina, Gonzales, The Alamo, Goliad and San Jacinto. Thank you for fighting for Texas.
God Bless Texas! God Bless Willie Nelson!
I have a lot to say about your Texas wall. I am quickly thumbing through my teacher edition of Texas history looking up the Willie Nelson connection to the history of Texas. Not there! Good news…you always get a pass!!
I love that you are into Texas history! You rock!
