History Of Texas

The first European settlers in Texas were Spanish missionaries in the 16th century. Hostile natives and isolation from other Spanish colonies kept Texas sparsely populated until following the Revolutionary War and the War of Mexican Independence, when the newly established Mexican government began to allow settlers from the U.S. to claim land there. This led to a popualtion explosion. After several smaller insurrections, the Texas Revolution broke out, and the state became an independent nation in 1835. In the early 20th Century, oil was discovered in the state, and remains its primary export today.
