April 21, the anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, is also the date
for the annual Texas A&M University Muster during which students and
former students gather in meetings all over the United States and around
The Roll Call for the Absent during Muster has been traced to the first
meeting of Texas A&M alumni in 1880. A report of Aggies celebrating
Muster through the bombing and shelling of Corregidor druing World War
II inspired the worldwide Musters that continue to this day.
Today, Aggies will Muster throughout the United States and in an
estimated 25 nations around the world.
