*Italians Coming to Texas*

The reasons Italians decided to come to Texas was because they purchased land, opened businesses, and acquired a degree of geographic mobility. The areas they settled in were : Houston, Galveston, and San Antonio. Italians settled in Texas from 1880-1920. In 1836, when Texas won independence from Mexico, Italian Prospero Bernardi was one of the Texans who fought at the Battle of San Jacinto.
