How did they set up the Spanish missions?
What were they trying to accomplish?
Were they successful?
Did the Spanish stay?
Were there any other European groups who came to Texas?
A few French Explorers stumbled into Texas accidently.
Unlike the Spanish, they attempted to get along with the Indians. They even traded with them.
The French were not here long, however.
Texas was the Northern part of Mexico that hardly anyone came to visit. The land was rough, there were hardly any settlers, the Indians weren't friendly.
Although the Spanish had little use for the land, they didn't want anyone else to have it, especially the French.
Texas fought for independence from Mexico for about a year.
The Alamo, Texas's top tourist attraction, occurred during the Revolution.
You'll learn the causes, consequences and people involved in well-known war.
It is after this Revolution where Texas became free from Mexico and it's own country.

Texas was it's own country, or Republic for nine years.
The USA did not want Texas at first because they were scared it'd make Mexico mad, as Mexico still claimed they had ties to Texas.
The U.S. was right. They went to war with Mexico shortly after Texas was annexed by the U.S.
Texas was unsuccessful as it's own country.
They didn't have enough money to survive on it's own.

Texas joined the Confederacy before and during the Civil War.
Texas did not have a huge part of the Civil War other than a few battles along the coast and many troops sent to fight.
After the Civil War, several people moved to Texas which helped to populate the state.
Civil War & Reconstruction
This is the era of cowboys and Indians
Cattle ranchers worked to get their cattle on cattle trails while Indians caused havoc on the ranchers.
The Indians did not welcome the cowboys which led to several battles and started the Texas Rangers Law Enforcement.

Texas remained uninhabited (without settlers) for years.
Finally in 1821, Mexico fought for its independence from Spain.
Thus, Texas was now part of the country of Mexico not Spain.
Texas became the state of Mexico called Coahuila y Texas, meaning Coahuila and Texas together.
Basically Texas didn't have a large enough population to be its' own state in Mexico.
Mexican Indepence Day is celebrated on September 16.
Americans, starting with Stephen F. Austin, start to
colonize Texas with the permission of Mexican government.
Troubles arise, disagreements become frequent.
Texans revolt against the Mexican government and it's
President, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
Texas became the 28th state in the U.S.
Besides going to war with Mexico over borders, Texas became the place to move to for a new start for many farmers, ranchers, and frontiersmen.
Having Texas also helped the United States expand its' Western boundaries.
