The 200th Anniversary of the First Republic of Texas
Join us as we celebrate with music, songs and lectures!
The 200th anniversary of the founding of the First Constitutional Government of Texas will be celebrated on Saturday April 6th 2013 at 10 AM at the Spanish Governors Palace in San Antonio.
On August 7th 1812 Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara and Augustus Magee cross the Sabine River flying the Emerald Green Flag of Liberty; and it would fly over Texas for a year and 11 days. On April 6th 1813, after a year of bloody warfare Gutierrez de Lara declared our independence. This was a real revolution, a revolution of the people, by the people and for the people.
Short lived it may have been, never the less Texas was a Republic with a written Declaration of Independence and a written Constitution.

There will be a special guest appearance by Little Joe from La Familia. Bill Millet PBS Documentarian will present “Texas before the Alamo,” which will premiere in Austin May 4th at the ESB Mexican American Cultural Center.
