160 Year Anniversary


One hundred sixty years ago today the President of the United (James K. Polk) signed annexation legislation, and Texas became the 28th state.

Texas, meaning "those who are friends," was the largest state until Alaska was admitted in 1959. Texas is still a big state, especially in the hearts and minds of Texas residents.
