On this day in 1836 after a well fought
revolution the people of Texas proudly
declared their independence from Mexico.
Men of legendary status likeGeneral Sam
Houston, led the fight and others like
Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William
Travis with their small command, paid the
the ultimate sacrifice of their lives
defending. The Alamo.
So today we pay tribute to those brave men
who fought for free and independent Texas.

And y'all North of the Red River in those
others states can join in with a "hoot 'n
a holler" to help celebrate. So.....

Remember the Alamo! Texas Rocks!

I was born in Texas, but grew up in S.C. from the time I was pretty small. My family were all Texans though, and Dad being a history professor, I knew about the Alamo and Texas revolution pretty early on and visited the Alamo several times as a child.

Funny thing, when I looked at the list of those who died there by state inside the Alamo museum, there were more South Carolinians that any other state except Tennessee. In fact, Travis was from S.C. as was James Bonham, who really was a hero of the battle. While out and about in the state (we used to camp and backpack near there) we ran across this in Saluda; -memorial.html
