Fun (Texas) facts about April 25

by The 100 Companies

Historically speaking, April 25 looms large in the Lone Star State; insofar as Texas-related trivia is concerned, this notable date marks a trio:

San Jacinto Day commemorates the end of the 18-month Texas Revolution in 1836 when Texan forces (led by General Sam Houston) defeated Mexico.

Texas Flag Day, the date upon which the Congress of the Republic of Texas adopted the Lone Star flag in tribute to the state’s ongoing struggle for independence, which they achieved in 1836.

The birthdate of Stephen F. Austin, largely considered the “Father of Texas,” for the crucial role he played in settling the region.
