Spanish missionaries were the earliest European settlers in Texas, founding San Antonio in 1718. Hostile natives and isolation from additional Spanish colonies kept Texas sparsely occupied until following the Revolutionary War and the War of Mexican self-government when the newly established Mexican government began to allow settlers from the U.S. to claim land there. This lead to an inhabitant’s explosion, but dramatically abridged the percentage of the population with Mexican heritage, causing friction with the government in Mexico City. After a number of smaller insurrections, the Texas Revolution broke out, and the state became an independent nation in 1836. However, the newly formed Texas Republic was not capable to defend itself from further incursions by Mexican troops and eventually negotiated with the U.S. to join the union in 1845.
The Johnson Space Center in Houston, originally established as the Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC) in 1961, is the site of Mission Control for all flights into space.

Referred to as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” the Astrodome in Houston was the world’s first domed stadium when it was opened in 1965.

Texas is the leading crude oil- and natural gas-producing state in the U.S. In 2011, it also produced more cattle, sheep, hay, cotton, and wool than any other state. The name Texas derives from a Caddo Indian word that means “friends” or “allies,” which was incorporated into the state motto: Friendship.
During Texas’ war for independence from Mexico, a group of 200 volunteers who were defending the fort and former Franciscan mission known as the Alamo near San Antonio was attacked by a much larger force of Mexican troops. The siege, which had begun on February 23, 1836, lasted for 13 days before the Mexican forces broke through the courtyard and annihilated most of the Texans, including famed frontiersman and former congressman from Tennessee, Davy Crockett.
On September 8, 1900, a Category 4 hurricane with winds up to 130 miles per hour pummeled Galveston, Texas, killing more than 8,000 people and destroying the once-thriving city. It remains the deadliest natural disaster in United States history.
