The nickname of Texas is famous—The Lone Star State. The lone star refers to the single star displayed on the various flags that flew while Texans fought for their independence from Mexico. There are accounts of a lone star flag raised at the Alamo and of one carried by General Sam Houston’s army that defeated Santa Anna at the battle of San Jacinto.
Texas has a turbulent history, demonstrated by the fact that its land has been under six different flags during the last three hundred years. Texas is the only state to have the flags of six different nations fly over it: Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederate States, and the United States.
(Oh, and of course the Camden flag) ha!ha!
1.) Texas used to be bigger. When Texas was an independent country, it claimed much of New Mexico and parts of Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Wyoming.

3.) Southeast Texas has more acreage devoted to tourism than the Great Smokey Mountain National Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park combined.
4.) The Rio Grande along the southern part of Texas forms the longest river border with a foreign country than any other boundary river in the U.S.
