This month in Texas history

Date: July 17, 0

On this day, at the Lavaca-Navidad Meeting, an assembly of Jackson Municipality colonists gathered to discuss the growing list of grievances against the Mexican government of Antonio López de Santa Anna. The group met at William Millican's gin house, located on the Job Williams league some four miles northeast of Edna in Jackson County. The resolutions discussed, written, and ratified at the meeting in many ways anticipated the Texas Declaration of Independence, issued the following March. In 1936 the state of Texas erected a marker on the site of Millican's gin.
