Texas State Overview

In Caddo , a Native American language also spoken by the Hasinai people who lived in east Texas between the Sabine River and the Trinity River, the word táysha means “friend” . In the old Spanish pronunciation it was called Tejas—Texas.

The state of Texas is located in the south-central United States of America and is the second largest state in the United States by both population and area. On the journey west one encounters many different types of terrain and landscape. The Cross Timbers, a narrow strip stretching from southeastern Kansas through Oklahoma to central Texas, with their prairies, savannas, and light mixed forests, provide a natural boundary to the more heavily forested areas to the east and the nearly treeless land of the Great Plains in the west of the state.

“Everything is bigger in Texas”. This figure of speech can also be attributed, among other things, to the great extent of the prairies and the deserts and to the vastness of the country. Because of its long history as an American cattle breeding center, Texas has always been associated with the image of cowboys. Those wild fellows who, since the 17th century, tended the cattle on horseback or drove them north. Around which countless legends entwine. And who measured their skills at the rodeos and still do. Everything is bigger in Texas. Also the rodeos.

Historically and culturally, Texas is part of the American South. But due to the Spanish and Mexican cultural influences that are also present, Texas is also considered part of the American Southwest. Although residents accept these categories, many champion an “independent Texan” identity that transcends regional categorization within the United States.

The saying “Six Flags over Texas” dates back to the days when many different states claimed what is now Texas. Spain was the first European country. France also had a colony there for a short time. The territory belonged to Mexico until 1836, when Texas finally gained its independence.

With the Texas Annexation , the voluntary annexation of the “Republic of Texas”, Texas became the 28th state to join the United States in 1845. The territory at that time included what is now Texas and parts of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming and Colorado.

In early 1861, Texas left the United States to join the Confederate States of America on March 23, 1861 .

Far from the battlefields of the American Civil War, the state’s contribution was in troops and equipment. In mid-1863, however, the line of supply was cut short by the Union’s capture of the Mississippi River. A few fights took place in Texas territory. Union troops briefly occupied the main port city of Galveston. After the Northern States’ victory, Texas fell into anarchy for a time. Violence reigned in the early days of “reconstruction,” a post-civil war period in which the nation and constitution were restored. Although Texas did not meet the requirements for “reconstruction,” the American Congress admitted the state back into the Union in 1870.

At the beginning of the 1900s, discoveries of crude oil caused an economic boom. Until the Second World War, the main sources of income remained cattle breeding, agriculture and oil production. Thereafter increased industrialization took place and today the economy of the state of Texas – one of the fastest growing in the USA – is largely based on information technology, oil and natural gas production, oil refineries, electricity generation and agriculture.

Geographical location

Texas is located in the southernmost part of the Great Plains , a vast prairie and steppe region that stretches from the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains of Canada to the Sierra Madre Oriental of Mexico.

Because of the country’s vast expanses and economic and cultural diversity, the state cannot be easily categorized. The East, North and Central Texas regions have a stronger affinity with the American South, while the West and South areas are closer to the Southwest.

The state’s natural borders are formed by the Rio Grande , Red iver , and Sabine Rivers . North Texas borders Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas to the east and the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas border Texas to the south. To the west of the state is New Mexico.
