Celebrating Texas Independence Day – March 2

The first shot of the Texas Revolution was fired at the Battle of Gonzales on Oct. 2, 1835. On March 2, 1836, the Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico was adopted at the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos. The war ended in April 1836 when Santa Anna was captured at San Jacinto and forced to sign the Treaties of Velasco.
