Texas – 175th Anniversary – 1845 - 2020
Celebrate Your History! Texas, the place you call Home. Texas means “Friends” in the Caddo language. Known as the Lone Star State, Texas shows the Lone Star on the state flag and state seal as a reminder that this great state was once an independent republic which struggled for independence from Mexico.
Stephen F. Austin, known as the Father of Texas, inherited the first land grant from his father, Moses Austin. The Old Three Hundred, Austin’s first settlers made places along the Brazos River. Many other people, like you and your family, came to settle in Texas and flouting Mexican Law. Freedom came after a series of revolts against the Mexican government.
The President of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, personally led an army to end the revolt, culminating in the Goliad Massacre. Santa Anna laid siege at the Battle of the Alamo, overwhelming the Texans and sparking panic among the settlers. After several weeks, Sam Houston, commanding the Texas Army, attacked and defeated Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto. We sent a woman to the fort to distract Santa Anna, later known as the “Yellow Rose of Texas” and the battle was concluded in 18 minutes. Santa Anna was shot in the ankle and was forced to sign the Treaties of Velasco, ending the War for Texas Independence.
Sam Houston advocated the annexation of Texas into the United States which was completed on Dec. 29, 1845. By 1850 the Texas borders were set to their present-day locations. Texas grew rapidly with migrants pouring onto the cotton lands. Later, the first oil well, Spindletop was found south of Beaumont. Other fields were discovered resulting in the “Oil Boom” which transformed Texas from a rural agricultural state to one that is urban and industrialized. Strong economic growth and diversification helped Texas become what it is today – a great place to live and raise a family!
