To Not Texans, this day may seem strange that Texans remember this date, or that it is a legal holiday here. On March 2, 1836, a declaration of independence was signed as Texas broke away from Mexico. This act didn’t come without bloodshed, probably the most famous was the Alamo. If you haven’t visited San Antonio, the Alamo, and the Riverwalk, I highly recommend this historical city be on your 1000 places!
Every state has its own special charm, Texas has a little bit of everything: coast line, hills, desert, plains, rivers, mountains-yep!- and swamps. The history here goes back a long way too–1300s, as well as my family’s. My mother’s great grandparents immigrated through Indianola (now a ghost town) after the Civil War.
Texas Independence Day–let’s celebrate, y’all!
