The Rebublic of Texas is no more


Capt. James H. Callahan

Recommended Posts

Today in 1845 Texas officially joined the United States. It was not until Feb. 19 1846 that Anson Jones, the last president of The Republic of Texas, lowered the Lone Star flag and raised the Stars and Stripes and spoke some very sad words....."The Republic of Texas is no more."

Until death do we part I suppose.

If Texas had stayed independent. it would have ended badly in my opinion. Eventually.

Eventually is a long time. In the short term back then yes. We were broke and looking down the barrel of Mexico's guns. After the discovery of oil, quien sabe? Guess we'll never know.
