Texas Toasts

  • "Texas, - May her foes turn pale at her name,
    and may she flourish until time is no more."
  • "Soldiers of Texas; -
    May their "breast works" be honor,
    and fear always a days "march" behind them."

On April 21, 1837 -- one year after the Battle of San Jacinto -- a celebration was held in Liberty, Texas. The May 9, 1837 edition of the Telegraph and Texas Register newspaper (published in Houston, Texas) contained a write-up about that celebration. K K Searle posted the text of that article over at That blogpost is entitled Texas Toasts . . . make sure you go read the rest of the story . . .
