Happy Dodransbicentennial, Texas!!

THAT was a mouthful...

It was 175 years ago, on March 2, as fighting was ongoing at the Alamo, that 59 delegates worked overnight to write the Texas Declaration of Independence officially declaring its independence from Mexico.

Bearing the state’s name, The USS Texas was commissioned in 1914 and is only one of six remaining ships to have seen duty in both World War I and II. Her home is now at the docks along San Jacinto State Park, where she sits as a permanent memorial and museum.
