This cool ringer tee commemorates Texas's 150th anniversary, or its sesquicentennial, in 1986. The state declared its independence from Mexico in 1836. Texas' sesquicentennial celebration lasted the entire year but Texas Independence Day falls on March 2nd. The 150th anniversary of independence came at a difficult time for Texas. The state's economy was struggling as oil prices began to drop in the mid 80s, but the celebrations proved to increase general moral and pride for Texans.

Tag says medium but fits like a modern unisex adult small.
