I know for most this will be a day late but I just wanted to wish all my Texan/Tejanos a Happy Texas Independnce Day.

Texas Independence Day marks the anniversary of the Texas Declaration of Independence, the formal separation from Mexico. The Texas Declaration was adopted on March 2, 1836 by the Convention of 1836.

The convention, which met at Washington-on-the-Brazos, was organized to draft a statement regarding the function and responsibility of government as well as provide a list of grievances with Mexico. The Texas Declaration, signed by 57 men, accused the Mexican government with abuse of power and failing to provide the citizens of Texas with the basic government principles like freedom of religion and trial by jury.

Upon completion of the declaration, the Republic of Texas was formed along with an interim government. Texas would remain a republic until December 29, 1845, when Congress admitted the republic into the United States.

True.. that's because we're proud of our heritage.

if push came to shove Texas could sustain itself.
However we are also extremely Proud of being American and doubt that Texans in whole would like to have us secede from the Union.

Although there is a movement calling for us to do so.
