Texas History and Culture
The Spanish were the first to settle in Texas where they founded the city of San Antonio. However the hostile Native Americans and Isolation from the other Spanish colonies kept the state scarcely populated. It was not until the War of Mexican Independence and the Mexican government allowing US citizens to claim land. This however brought a struggle between the American land owner and the new government that eventually brought the war for Texas. The most famous of these battles being at the Alamo. Texas did not become a legal state until 1845 and had become its own independent country.
Texas has a very proud population. They have a form of pride in their voice when they say they are from Texas and that is justly so. They went from being a part of Mexico to being an independent country for over ten years, and finally becoming a state.. Odds are when you go to Texas you will here about the Alamo or the six flags and If I were you, I'd listen. Texans are very friendly and will have no problem sitting down and having a nice talk with a complete stranger. Also you will learn to enjoy Mexican food, because of it heritage, many spanish ancestry is present here.
