    More Information:

    Asa Brigham (1790-1844) signed the Texas Declaration of Independence in 1836 and then was appointed the Texas Republic's first treasurer by President Sam Houston. He was reappointed by President Mirabeau Lamar and later became mayor of Austin.


    During the Texas Revolution, Columbia, Texas, (known today as West Columbia) served as the capital of the Texas Republic, with Texas' first congress convening there in October 1836. Seven days before this warrant was signed, Sam Houston was inaugurated in Columbia as the first president of the new republic. The town declined after the capital was moved briefly to Houston in December 1836.
