A Special Day for Texas

Since I live in Texas, if this hadn't taken place on this day in history, I could not live in the state of Texas.  Why?  Because it would be Mexico.

Yep it was on this day back in 1846 that the U.S. Congress voted to declare war on Mexico in a dispute over Texas.  After about two years of fighting, the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (signed on February 2, 1848) which made the Rio Grande the southern border of the U.S. with Mexico, officially made Texas a part of the U.S.  By the way, I am old and I live in Texas, but I am not quite old enough to have been an eye witness to all of this.

Just thought that you would enjoy reading about this little bit of history.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear? 


  1. Still looks like northern Mexico to me. :)

    1. Depends where you are in this huge state. My property has ponds, swamps, hardwood and softwood trees, etc. Not what the movies show Texas to look like.

  2. Thanks for the history lesson, my friend!

    1. You are welcome, Jim. But you give more history lessons than I ever will.

  3. Wishing you and Texas the best!

    1. Thanks Gypsy. Nice day here today, but the rains move back in sometime tomorrow.

  4. Thank you for that bit of history Dizzy

    1. You are welcome, JO. History is important, if we are smart we will not make the same mistakes over and over again. If. . . .

  5. So glad the US did that. Thanks for the history lesson. Have a great day.

  6. At least back in 1846 Congress voted to declare a war. These days Administrations begin wars without even consulting Congress.
