Texas covers 656,425 square miles with a population of 25,145,561 people. Texas is the 2nd largest state and 2nd in most populous. Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in Texas at 8,749 located 10 miles from the New Mexico border. The first suspension bridge in the United States was the Waco Bridge. Built in 1870 and still in use today as a pedestrian crossing of the Brazos River. The motto "friendship" dates back to the time of early European explorers in Texas. When traveling through Texas, they were greeted by American Indians yelling "Tejas!" a native word meaning friendship. The explorers mistakenly thought this was the name of the region and named the area Tejas, which later changed to Texas after the Texas Revolution.

Americans, led by Stephen F. Austin, began to settle along the Brazos River in 1821 when Texas was controlled by Mexico, recently independent from Spain. In 1836, following a brief war between the American settlers in Texas and the Mexican government, the Independent Republic of Texas was proclaimed with Sam Houston as president. This war was famous for the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto. After Texas became a state in 1845, border disputes led to the Mexican War of 1846–1848.
