Join us on September 1, 2022, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) when our curators will discuss the 1836 Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico with Professor H. W. Brands of the University of Texas at Austin. Like the United States’ Declaration of Independence, this document contains a list of grievances against the government and focuses on the rights of citizens to “life” and “liberty” but with an emphasis on the “property of the citizen.” We will learn about the creation and background of the Declaration and take a deeper look into the language of the document.
This event is for teachers, students and their families — and everyone with an interest in history!
Everyone who registers will be sent a Zoom meeting link and instructions in the confirmation email.
