Statehood For Texas

29 Dec

After several failed attempts to annex with the United States, due to political opposition from Northern factions, Texas was finally granted annexation on December 29, 1845.  Texas did not have the ability to enforce its Rio Grande border, however the United States military did.  Mexico dissolved their political relations with US over the annexation Texas.  It seems a shame that the Republic of Texas was dissolved, however her spirit and heritage is alive and well.  Congratulations Texas on 165 years of statehood.
