The Unique History

Derived from the Caddo Indian tribe’s word for “friendship”, Texas has a unique and interesting past that helped mold the fast-growing state of today. Originally inhabited by Spanish Missionaries who settled in San Antonio in the year 1718, the state remained primarily desolate. However, the empty space was soon filled up by constant fighting between the original Mexican settlers and the US citizens who were granted permission to settle there in the aftermath of the Revolutionary War in America and the War of Mexican Independence. After many a battle, Texas become its own independent nation in 1835, and eventually gained its statehood on December 29th, 1845.
