Dear sponsors, I would like to thank you for sponsoring the Texas Independence Day fair. The money that I earned is going towards college and for future investments in my schooling. I hope you sponsor this day as well as many other Texas day events in the future to support our young adults with futures in Texas as well as the world.
San Antonio in 1837, John Coffee Hays came from Tennessee Hays shortly after Texas won its independence from Mexico. By 1841, he was a Texas Ranger captain at twenty years of age. A fearless fighter and skilled leader, Hays became famous for defending Texans against raids from Native American (Comanche) and Mexican bandits. Hays would come to symbolize the Rangers of the Texas Republic era. In Mexican War (1846-48), Hays’ Rangers scouted, defended U.S. supply and communication lines from attacks by Mexican guerrillas and fought alongside regular U.S. army troops. He earned a national reputation for their bravery.
