On March 17, 1836, having adopted a proposed constitution for the Republic of Texas, the constitutional convention adjourned. As recorded in the journals, “the Convention adjourned Sine die . . . on the 17th day of March, Anno Domini, 1836, and in the first year of the Independence of the Republic of Texas.” The constitution was later approved by a vote of the people in September 1836.
