Texas

Texas, one of the West South Central states of the U. S., bordered on the N. by Oklahoma, on the NE by Arkansas, on the E. by Louisiana, on the SE by the Gulf of Mexico, on the SW by Mexico, and on the W. by New Mexico. The Red River forms part of the N. boundary, the Sabine R. forms part of the E. boundary, and the Rio Grande forms the border with Mexico.

Texas entered the Union on December 29, 1845, as the 28th State.  Two 20th Century U. S. Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Lyndon B. Johnson were born in Texas.  In the 19th Century the Texas economy was based on cattle breeding, cotton growing, and other agricultural activities.  After 1900 petroleum and natural gas production became very important and the state also developed a diversified manufacturing sector.  In the early 1980's Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio were the state's largest cities and among its important industrial centers.  The state's name is derived from tejas, the mid 16th Century rendering of a Caddo Indian term meaning, "friends." It was adopted and spelled as Texas in 1836, the year it became independent of Mexico.  Texas is known as the Lone Star State for the single star on its flag.
