TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY

Texas Independence Day celebrates the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836, in Washington-on-the-Brazos, Texas. The document listed grievances against the Mexican government by the citizens of this Mexican territory, and then declared Texas a “free, sovereign, and independent republic.” Meanwhile, Mexican dictator Santa Anna was besieging the Alamo as part of a campaign to quell the rebellion.

On this date in history in 1962, the late, great Wilt Chamberlain set an NBA scoring record with 100 points against the NY Knicks. 1967 photo. Philadelphia 76ers press photo, Public Domain, https commons.wikimedia.org
