Happy birthday in heaven today to the late George Harrison. George, the lead guitarist of The Beatles and The Traveling Wilburys, as well as so many solo recordings, was born February 25, 1943, 80 years ago today. Rest In Peace, Georgie, and thank you for the many wonderful musical memories.
Today is the 187th anniversary of the beginning of the massacre at the Alamo, February 23, 1836. When it was over 13 days later, Texas had declared its independence from Mexico; “Remember the Alamo” was a battle cry heard across the new Republic; and 189 men, women, and children were being mourned in the South Texas Cradle of Independence.
Texas founding fathers declared The Republic of Texas to be a nation independent of Mexico on March 6, 1836.
