Two Spanish explorers in the 17th and 16th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area. They settled near El Paso in 1682. There was also a short-lived French colony located at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River, in 1821. Mexico controlled Texas at this time, and Mexico had become recently independent.
There was a series of short spats between the Mexican government and the American settlers until the Americans declared an Independent Republic of Texas, with Sam Houston as the head. The war did produce a couple of legendary battles, namely San Jacinto and the Alamo. There was the Mexican War in the mid-1800s, between Mexico and Texas. Texas has large amounts of natural resources, and its two biggest are agricultural products and industrial products. It's the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton.
