Texas Independence Day

Texas Independence Day!
On March 2, 1836, Texas declared it's independence from Mexico and became
The Republic of Texas.
Fifty-four delegates of the Convention of 1836 began meeting on March 1 at the village of Washington-on-the-Brazos, located today between present-day Houston and Austin. Each of the settlements of Texas were represented by delegates elected one month earlier. The convention elected Richard Ellis president of the convention, and Herbert S. Kimble secretary.
