1836年德克薩斯人宣佈從墨西哥獨立,成立德克薩斯共和國,同年發生了著名的阿拉莫之圍(siege of the Alamo),而吉姆鮑伊(Jim Bowie)和戴維克羅克特(Davy Crockett)則死於此次戰役中。 別名「孤星之州」(Lone Star State)的德州於1845年加入聯邦,成為美國第28州。德州是一個西班牙名字,取自於一個代表朋友或盟友的印地安字 。德州是美國第二大州,僅次於阿拉斯加州。雖然它是一個荒野、邊遠地區,但今日的德州是石油的主要生產州,而且是工產及金融的重要中心。研究德州的歷史學家表示該州州花矢車菊對德州的象徵意義就像是酢漿草之於愛爾蘭。


The Republic of Texas achieved its independence from Mexico in 1836, the same year as the famous siege of the Alamo in which pioneers Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett were slain. The "Lone Star State" was the 28th state to join the Union, admitted in 1845. The name Texas is a Spanish name, which comes from an Indian word meaning "friends" or "allies." Texas is the second-largest state in the Union in area, after Alaska. Although it has a wild, frontier history, today Texas is a major producer of oil and has important centers of industry and finance. A Texas state historian has said that the state flower, the bluebonnet, "is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland."
