On March 2, 2012, three men and their passion for Texas celebrated Texas Independence Day in Granbury, Texas. In an effort to honor the heroes from the historical Alamo Battle of 1836, these men donned period costumes and reenacted history. “Present and accounted for” were Lt. Colonel William B. Travis (portrayed by Cullen Crisp), General Sam Houston (portrayed by Boots Hubbard) and David Crockett (portrayed by Richlon Merrill). The reenactments as well as a recitation of the famous Travis Letter were part of a larger plan to educate people of all ages about Texas and its rich history.
This year we hope to ignite a passion across our state by inviting people to take part in an even bigger celebration. On behalf of the board of The Texas Heroes Foundation we invite you to “March to Texas” and experience all she has to share.
It’s all about Texas,
