Happy Independence Day, Texas!

March 2 marks the Independence Day of Texas! In 1836, Texas declared independence from Mexico1.

During this era, Texas' most famous heroes emerged, such as James Bowie, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, William B. Travis, Collin McKinney, Stephen F. Austin, and a host of many others.
