A Prologue: 2007 Texan of the Year

Remember the Alamo!!!!

Let’s take a step back in history. Once upon a time, there was a skirmish at a place called The Alamo where larger than life heroes met their fate at the hands of General Santa Anna. The bloody defeat did not vanquish the Texans’ fight for independence from Mexico. Even after the Massacre at Goliad, Texans fought and won their freedom at the Battle of San Jacinto.

On April 22, 1836, Texas ceased being a part of Mexico and the glorious Republic of Texas was born. In 1845, Texas joined the United States to become the 28th state of the Union.
