The History of Texas in 11 Minutes

Texas has a rich and diverse history that spans thousands of years, starting with the indigenous peoples who inhabited the region for thousands of years before the arrival of European settlers. In the 16th century, Spanish explorers and missionaries arrived in Texas, followed by Mexican settlers in the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico, and after a nine-month conflict, became its own republic. The state joined the United States in 1845 and played a pivotal role in the American Civil War. Throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Texas experienced significant growth and development, becoming a major center of agriculture, oil production, and industry. Today, Texas is the second-largest state in the United States, with a diverse economy and a rich cultural heritage.

  1. The Alamo was Never supposed to be held! They were told to leave days before the Mexicans besieged them! Sergeant Major Travis decided upon himself to defend the Alamo! Houston wanted nothing to do with it so he didn't send men! 300 men did head that way but showed up too late! The Alamo didn't have to happen but became the rallying cry for the war! So did Goliad!

  2. actually the USA didn't just take Texas from the mexicans, they took the entire Mexico too when they won the Mexican-American war, but they decided to let it become an """"independent country"""" because they don't want mexicans as part of America back then. But notice the part where there's not too many mexicans like the Western part of America became part of the United States.

  3. No mention of the "Battle of San Jacinto" where Texas walloped the Mexican Army and gained it's Independence. That's just 45 minutes from my home and I've been there, and to the top of the tallest monument in the US, many times since I was a child. Pretty sorry documentary, in my honest opinion.

  4. The USA came out of nowhere in the video. It was the French in the west, and the Spanish in the east, and the indigenous people in the middle, for the first half of the video, and then suddenly there are Texans out of nowhere, and there is the USA out of nowhere.
