Sons of the Republic of Texas

The Sons of the Republic of Texas (“SRT”) consists of members who are direct lineal descendants of those that settled the Republic of Texas prior to February 19, 1846, when Texas merged with the United States as the 28th state. The SRT traces its origins back to April, 1893, and the Texas Veterans Association, which was comprised of members that actually lived in the Republic of Texas. It was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1934.

Since its inception, the purpose of the SRT has been to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved and maintained the independence of Texas. Its mission is to (i) encourage historical research and publication of the earliest records of Texas, (ii) foster the preservation of historic sites, documents and artifacts relating to the period of the Republic, (iii) participate in community activities which will remind the populace of its Republic of Texas heritage, and (iv) mark the observance of certain dates that are important to the history of the Republic of Texas.
