Texas Independence Day

Today in history, March 2, 1836, Texans gathered in Washington-on-the-Brazos signed the Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico. The Alamo in San Antonio was under siege, and the Declaration was written - literally - overnight, between March 1 and 2. Texas became an independent nation until joining the Union in 1845.

Celebrate Texas Independence Day -- Kiss a Texan (preferably of the opposite sex).
