The Texas Declaration of Independence was unique among civil documents for many reasons. Not the least of which it is considered by many historians to have articulated the ideals of the right of man to dissolve the bonds that tied them to one government and establish another, better than any other.
While it clearly used the declaration written by the delegates of the colonies 60 years prior, it made several more important declarations and statements. While the declaration written mainly by Jefferson took 3 weeks to craft, the one that was written at "Washington-on-Brazos", the then seat of government for the fledging republic, was completed in a matter of hours in one day in one single sitting & signed the next day the evening of March 2, 1836.
For those that have the time, read the words of the Texas declaration
. I believe you can see how timeless the message of liberty is, and how history repeats itself.
This is not a political thread. Just a look back into history and a day of celebration for all us native and naturalized Texans, and anyone else who can appreciate our rich past.
So, happy Indy Day fellow Texans, and to you friends of the the other several states may your own states' histories continue to be celebrated with an air of appreciation to the forefathers who entrusted to you the ideals they sacrificed so selflessly to secure for you and your posterity.
And happy birthday to my mom, who was lucky enough to come into this world on Texas soil, on the most important day in Texas's history.
