You’re Invited to a Library Open House, March 6
The Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library will be having a special Open House this coming Saturday, March 6, in honor of the 174th anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo. The Library will be open between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm on that day.
Special rare and one-of-a-kind materials documenting the fall of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution will be on display, including:
- An original copy of the Texas Declaration of Independence, one of about thirteen known to still exist.
- A letter written by Alamo defender Daniel Cloud while en route to San Antonio.
- A letter written by Abishai Dickson, who was killed at Goliad.
- A cased photograph of Angelina Dickinson, Alamo survivor, and a petticoat that belonged to her.
Visitors will also be able to attend the Alamo‘s living history program, held on the first Saturday of each month, and learn about daily life in the Republic of Texas.
Researchers will not be able to access library or archival materials during this event. Patrons interested in conducting research at the library should return during regular business hours or contact library staff.
We look forward to seeing you at the library!
