Default Texas Independence Day.

On this day in 1836, the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed which officially marked independence from Mexico and created the Republic of Texas.

Write up about Goliad in the DMN.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/from...shadowed-alamo

On the fateful day of March 2, 1836, Texas declared independence from Mexico. Though we all tend to remember the Alamo because is seemingly required as a Texan, there's one event that typically gets overlooked.


The Goliad Massacre occurred March 27, 1836, just three weeks after the battle of the Alamo.


Col. James W. Fannin and his army of men had surrendered to the Mexican army and agreed to be treated as prisoners of war.

Fannin occupied a fort in Goliad and despite warnings of Mexican advancement decided to stay put. It wasn't until Fannin learned that two men in his field had been captured that he decided to abandon his fort.


As the Texians traveled away from Goliad, the Mexican army began encroaching on Fannin's troop of men until they were fully surrounded and had to engage in battle. Fannin and his men would ultimately surrender as many of their men were wounded and supplies began to run short and they could not get through another battle.

Goliad independence flag: A severed arm and bloody sword testified Texans would rather lose an arm than be under the yoke of a tyrant. The flag was made in 1835, when the Goliad Deceleration of Independence was ratified.

Fannin and his men were imprisoned after they agreed to be treated as prisoners of war. They drafted terms of surrender that included being able to return back to the United States. The men were sent back to Goliad to be imprisoned, where they thought they would eventually be released.

It didn't go that way, however, as Santa Anna only accepted unconditional surrender and would order that the men be massacred. They were taken out of the fort where they were imprisoned and about a mile into their journey, Mexican soldiers opened fire on the men.


Though the battle ended in tragedy, it is is said to have been the driving force for the Texas army on April 21, 1836, when they defeated the Mexican army at the battle of San Jacinto, which marked the last battle of the Texas Revolution and the beginning of Texas' independence from Mexico.
