Happy Texas Independence Day!

On March 2, 1836, 59 delegates and settlers in Mexican Texas signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. 

The document officially declared Texas independent from Mexico. 

Texas was its own country from 1836 until it was granted statehood in 1845

Also on this day in 1793, the first (and third) President of the Texas Republic, Sam Houston, was born in Virginia.
