Congressman Nathaniel Moran (TX-01) released the following statement in honor of Texas Independence Day:
“On March 2, 1836, a brave group adopted the Texas Declaration of Independence, marking Texas’ independence from Mexico during the Battle of the Alamo. The story of freedom for Texas mirrors the story of freedom for the United States – born out of a love for freedom, independence, and a belief that they could build out a better life for their families. Generations later, I am proud to celebrate our great State’s history and honor the sacrifices of our ancestors who fought for the Republic of Texas and established the foundation of the Lone Star State’s values – the same values I was raised with and am proud to teach my children. God bless Texas and Happy Texas Independence Day!”
