“Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.”
— General Sam Houston
Well, I think we can all raise a Shiner Bock and thank God for that.
UPDATE: A reader informs me that my headline is confusing because Texas Independence Day is celebrated on March 2nd. Duly noted, but I think considering that San Jacinto was the final battle of the Texas Revolution where Texas won its independence, we’ll call the headline confusing but nonetheless accurate.
UPDATE II — from a reader:
This native Texan and devoted Cornerite would like to add that the battle of San Jacinto lasted all of 18 minutes. How’s that for shock and awe?
