Subject: OT: Texas Independence Day


Yes this post is off-topic, but so what!

Today marks the 166th anniversary of Texas Independence as declared at
Washington-on-the-Brazos, Texas on March 2, 1836.

In honor of this most auspicious day I thought the members of these
lists
(archivist, recmgmt-l and achives-nra) would be interested in taking a
little
test.

The test can be found by clicking on the following link or
copying-n-pasting
it into your browser.

The Dallas Morning News also has an answer sheet available.

And what connection does the UK have to Texas? Well Great Britain
recognized
the Republic of Texas as an independent nation. One can find a bronze
plaque
in London that memorializes the location of the Texas embassy in that
city.

Best wishes to all
