Daughters of the Republic of Texas to celebrate Texas History Month

DRT to pay tribute to Texas Independence Day, Texas Flag Day, the birthday of Sam Houston and the heroes of the Alamo and Goliad

March is Texas History Month. The public is invited to join with the William Carroll Crawford Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas at noon on Friday, March 1, by the DRT building on the Courthouse Square in Center.

We will pay tribute to Texas Independence Day, Texas Flag Day, the birthday of Sam Houston and the heroes of the Alamo and Goliad.

We'll tell you about some of the women and children who survived the Battle of the Alamo. And we will recognize one of our Chapter members, Juanita Sample Chandler, as a Real Granddaughter of the Republic of Texas.

Her grandfather, James Bedford Sample, was a resident of what became Shelby County during the days of the Republic of Texas. Come celebrate some of our Texas history.

In case of rain,we will meet in the Historic Shelby County Courthouse on the Courthouse Square. Hope to see you Friday.
