On this day in 1826, a group of Anglo settlers in east Texas rebelled against Mexican rule by taking control of the Old Stone Fort at Nacadoches, later declaring the Republic of Fredonia from the Sabine to the Rio Grande.  The rebellion only lasted about a month, but was a precursor to the later, successful one that created the Republic of Texas.

Regardless of which rebellion you hold most dear, celebrate freedom at the Boneyard Drinkery, 8150 Washington Ave. Stop by for a pint at 8 PM and bring Rover, as you don’t get any more dog-friendly a drinking establishment in Houston (but check the park rules).  Bring a jacket.
