WASHINGTON-ON-THE-BRAZOS, Texas -- Welcome to Texas Independence Day -- going back to 1836.
It was 174 years ago, on March 2, that 59 delegates worked overnight to write the Texas Declaration of Independence during the Texas Revolution.
Texas declared it independence from Mexico.
The event happened at what's now Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park. The 293-acre state park held a weekend festival to help commemorate the signing of the declaration.
Families, re-enactors and historians gathered at the Bullock Amphitheater on Sunday to sing Happy Birthday to Texas.
