The Texan flag, often called the Lone Star Flag, is flown near homes and other buildings across Texas. A re-enactment of the San Jacinto Battle takes place at the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site on a Saturday close to April 21. It features costumes, canons and pyrotechnics, and is part of a festival that features family entertainment and highlights aspects of Texan history, culture and nature.
The Aggie Muster, at Texas A&M University in central Texas, is another important event that occurs on April 21 each year. The term “Aggie” refers to the school’s students, alumni and sports teams. The muster is a tradition that celebrates friendships and affiliations, while remembering the lives of Aggies who died.
