"Texas Admission Day." - Did you know... 12/29/2011

 Texas Admission Day
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Did you know.... that today is Texas Admission Day? Texas became the 28th state of the United States in 1845. Trivia fans: The official state flag of Texas, called the Lone Star Flag, was adopted when Texas was admitted. The colors represent bravery (red), purity (white), and loyalty (blue). The large white star was first used on Texas flags in the 1830's during the battles between Texas and Mexico.
