PEACELINKS - Statewide & More Texas Cities

Texas, is a "state of mind" - Texians broke away from Mexico in 1836, founding a new Republic. In 1845 it joined the United States. The history of this state is as varied as its people who come from all parts of the world. Two presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower and Lyndon Baines Johnson, were born in Texas and both George Herbert Walker Bush and President George Walker Bush hail from Texas as well.

Known as the "Lone Star State and for the "6 flags" that have flown over it, Texas is today the second largest state in the U.S. and goes by the state motto "friendship". A large and diverse state, Texas has more trees than Virginia, more coastline than California, more desert than Arizona, and is more fun than almost anywhere.

Texas remained largely rural until World War II, with cattle ranching, oil, and agriculture as its main industries. In 1926 San Antonio had the largest population of any city in Texas with only 120,000 people. After World War II, Texas became increasingly industralized and is now an international business and technology center. The state passed New York in the 1990s to become the second-largest U.S. state in population (after California).



"Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word." - John Steinbeck
