THE FAMOUS LAVACA - NAVIDAD

MEETING OF 1835

From At the cotton gin of William Millican, near here, on July 17, 1835, occurred the significant Lavaca - Navidad meeting, held by pioneers living near the two rivers.  James Kerr, the founder of Gonzales, was chairman and the Rev. S. C. A Rogers, Secretary.  The meeting adopted resolutions protesting mistreatment of Texas colonists by the Government of Mexico.  This early formal public protest was a forerunner of the Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836, and the constituting of the Republic of Texas.
