Recently, Texas celebrated its 184th Independence Day! Join us in celebrating this great state all month long.
What is Texas Independence Day?
On March 2, 1836, Texas' revolutionary government formally declared its independence from Mexico. For almost a decade, Texas existed as an independent republic with Sam Houston serving as Texas' first elected president. By 1845, Texas officially joined the Union as the 28th state.
