Signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence

On the frozen morning of March 1, 1836, forty-four men shivered in an unfinished house in the tiny hamlet of Washington, Texas. They and fifteen other men who later joined them, representing all the municipalities in the Mexican province of Texas, declared the province to be a free and independent republic. Through twenty panels of photographic images and captions, this exhibition presents an expanded look at these fifty-nine extraordinary men who brought modern Texas into being.
