Two Spanish explorers in the 17th and 16th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area, and Spanish immigrants settled near El Paso in 1682. Around the same time, a short-lived French colony sprung up at Matagorda Bay nearly 700 miles away. Americans started to colonize at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico had recently become independent from Spain and controlled Texas at this time.
A short series of spats between the Mexican government and the American settlers took place until the Americans declared an Independent Republic of Texas with Sam Houston as its leader. The Texas Revolution, famous for the battles of San Jacinto and the Alamo, gave Texas its independence. It joined the Union in 1845.
Texas is the second biggest state by land after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil and cotton. Tourists come for the 100 state parks, Gulf Coast resort area, Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Alamo historical site, Big Bend Mountains National Park and much more.
