Texas Day By Day tells the dramatic story of Texas one day at a time. Each day's story highlights an event associated with the history of Texas and provides a brief description of what occurred. All stories are drawn from the Handbook of Texas Online, our Internet encyclopedia of Texas history, geography, and culture. Each Day By Day feature includes links to some of theHandbook's 25,000 articles.
We are choosing stories that we think will, in time, fully cover the complex and fascinating network of events that created the place we call Texas. Some will seem familiar, while others will be news to many. Some of the stories will amuse and even astonish readers. Others will inspire, and some may sadden. But we hope that each will help you rediscover the history of Texas, day by day.
