Tomorrow Is a Very Special Day - Here's a Preview

The Lone Star
I wanted to post this announcement tonight so you'd be aware of what is going to be our feature tomorrow on Three States Plus One, because tomorrow is a special day for all Texans. It was on December 29, 1845 that The Republic of Texas became the State of Texas, entering the United States as the 28th State in the Union.

I am thinking about doing several small posts, each of which would cover a specific period in Texas History, from the 16th Century to the present. That's a lot of territory to cover, but I think it will be well worth the effort when all is said and done. I promise to make each post as concise and informative as possible. This type of format will also allow you to read each entry as your time constraints dictate, without getting about half way through a single long post and being interrupted by something pesky...like work.

It promises to be a lot of fun taking a look at the events and people that shaped the land that is like no other place on Earth. It's your home. It's my home. And it's like a whole other country. It is Texas.
