Today Is Texas Independence Day

Today is Texas Independence Day. On this date in 1836 delegates from the then Mexican colony of Tejas declared independence from Mexico.
The war had begun the previous year and would end with the Texian victory at San Jacinto several weeks later.
The siege of the Alamo (pictured here) would end after a 13 day sruggle on March 6, 1836.
Myths have grown around the Alamo and the war in general. History can be a bit messy but these events are still celebrated and remembered here in Texas.
