Recuerden San Jacinto!
On this day, a small, outnumbered and outgunned force of Texians faced off against the brutal forces of a corrupt dictator. No, I'm not talking about the special session; today is the 170th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto which secured independence for the Republic of Texas. I was lucky enough to spend part of the day today at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, an experience I recommend to anyone interested in the heroic history of our state.
