Gov. Abbott Remembers Sacrifices Of Past Generations On Texas ...

On March 2, 2022, Governor Abbott declared the state of Texas independent. Note from the Editor: The above video is a rerun from a prior episode of this series set in Texas, USA. And thus, on this, the 237th anniversary of Texas’ independence, I wish you.

As of today, March 2, 2022, Texas is officially celebrating its independence from the United States, thanks to a proclamation signed by Governor Greg Abbott. In the words of the proclamation, “brave Texans fought for their independence from a tyrannical government in Mexico that denied its population essential freedoms” (first with the pen, then with the sword).

Texas Declaration of Independence.

Texans of all walks of life came together in the fall of 1835 in Gonzales to protect their rights to freedom and their property. A group of delegates met in Washington-on-the-Brazos on March 2, 1836, to sign the Texas Declaration of Independence.

During the Texas Revolution, many Texans lost their lives. The brave Texan warriors led by General Sam Houston were inspired by the deaths of the Alamo’s defenders and those at Presidio La Baha in Goliad.

Battle of San Jacinto

On April 21, 1836, Houston led an army revolt against Spanish rule and defeated Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto, establishing the Republic of Texas and securing its independence.

During the revolution, many valiant Texans perished, including everyone stationed at the Alamo and at Presidio La Baha in Goliad. However, the Texas army led by General Sam Houston would use their deaths as inspiration.

On April 21, 1836, he declared victory and secured freedom for the fledgling Republic of Texas after he led an army to a decisive victory over Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto.

Government Becomes An Instrument Of Oppression And Must Be Destroyed.

Abbott said in the proclamation, “The goal of freedom set down by our forefathers in the Texas Declaration of Independence continues on in the indomitable Texas spirit today.” Remembering the contributions of previous generations is essential as we develop a Texas fit for the 21st century.

When a government stops safeguarding the lives, liberties, and property of the people from whom it derives its power, that government becomes an instrument of oppression and must be destroyed, as those delegates said nearly 200 years ago.

Never Forget The Price Paid For Live In A Better World.

Courageous Texans rose up in opposition to the oppression of the Mexican government, eventually establishing a republic that was free from Mexico’s control. The tenacious Texas spirit keeps alive the founders’ dream of freedom as outlined in the Texas Declaration of Independence.

As Texans of the twenty-first century, we must never forget the price paid by those who came before us so that we might live in a better world. Right now, I think it’s important for every Texan to consider our state’s remarkable past and to appreciate its singular beginnings.
