Celebrating the TEXAS Declaration of Independence
1974. The Story of TEXAS. A History Picture Book by Betsy Warren and Martha Ingerson. RanchGate, Austin, Texas. I found this book about 4 months ago at Half-Price Books.
On March 02, 1836, a Declaration of Independence was issued from Washington-on-the-Brazos where the delegates were meeting in a blacksmith's shop. I see SAM HOUSTON on his horse everytime I go to Hermann Park. To be continued on March 06 . . . a day to remember!
