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.

I think the word voter should be used instead of Texan to imply what happened on a vote. It's not like these votes were universal suffrage.
Texas became Texas because of slaver thou.
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!
Just wanna point out that calling people from Texas "Texans" is no longer correct, they are "Americans".
Let’s go Texas
The Mexican American war was
A war planned out by the US to take advantage of mexicos week state
If I remember correctly, Texas was named Nueva Filipinas or New Philippines by either Spain or independent Mexico.
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.

First Texas was annexed as a territory, then after the war it was organized into a state.
As always, great video 👍
Very great episode, however, you forgot to include when the USA purchased the Gadsden Territory from Mexico in 1854
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.
Six Flags amusement parks gets its name from the Six sovereignties that controlled Texas: Spain, France, Mexico, the Texas Republic, the CSA, and the USA.
This is some woke commie bat poop
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.
Ehh. Not bad for a Quick summary, but should've mentioned Comanches for at least a moment. Comancheria was a Major part of the story of early México and Texas.
please do history about Cambodia or Khmer
Plagued is harsh an unneeded as statement. Also, there was no such thing as Juneteenth, completely made up by CRT and the liberal mod to further devise us today.
