Portrait by Thomas Flintoff
Today is the anniversary of President Houston’s birth in 1793.
What’s that, you say? You don’t recall a President named ‘Houston’?
That, my dear friends, is because you are not up on your Texas history &/or because you do not have Anniversaries and Holidays (1928) sitting on your desk. Sam Houston was the first President of the Republic of Texas.
Today also marks the anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence of Texas from Mexico. A “2-fer” day for Texas!
