The Republic of Texas successfully separated from Mexico by defeating Santa Anna at San Jacinto on April 21st, 1836. We call that "San Jacinto Day" down here.
They say that Mexico wants it back.
Looking around, I'd say they just about may have it!

Texas Independence Day is celebrated on March 2nd in remembrance of 'The Texas Declaration of Independence"written, signed and sealed at Washington-on-the Brazos in 1836.
We are about a month late here, but what the hell.
Is there an Illinois Independence Day? Or an Iowa Independence Day?
I don't think so!

Thanks and a tippo to Sharon (the Shaz!)!

'The Alamo" with John Wayne is a very good movie to watch. Also stars Chill Wills, Denver Pyle, and Richard Widmark.
