Texas Independence Day

Senator Judith Zaffini reminds us that:

TODAY IS TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY, and the original 175-year-old handwritten document proclaiming our independence from Mexico will be displayed in the Texas Senate at 11 a.m. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst will introduce the document and the re-enactor color guard. I will be among the five senators who will read a section of it during a very special observance. Another four will read the names of the “signers.”

And that:

Historians believe that the original document and five copies were made and signed. Only the original survives. It will be displayed at the Texas Archives and Library in Austin throughout March.

One of her readers points to: The Texas Nationalist Movement

Umm… yeeeeah… maybe the cultural/history part of the mission flies. To each their own.
