"If you bring these leaders to trial it will condemn the North,

"Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed
to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender
at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen
these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at
Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand."
General Robert E. Lee,
August 1870 to Governor Stockdale of Texas

"All we ask is to be let alone."
President Jefferson Davis

though it may be at another time and in another form."

It destroyed the ability of the states to protect themselves
against the destruction of their reserved powers.
Must we all be happy about this?
--Joseph Sobran (syndicated columnist)

"The troops of the other states have their reputations to gain,
The sons of the Alamo have theirs to maintain."
President Jefferson Davis

Texas Quotes
My favorite Aggie joke? I'm sorry I don't understand the question
- Singer Lyle Lovett - Texas A&M class of 1979

You’re not a real Texan till you’ve been kicked out of
every decent state in America
. - Joe Bob Briggs.

In Texas, a political speech is sometimes referred to as a longhorn:
one that makes two good points, but they are a long way apart and
have a lot of bull in between.
Observation recorded by Herring and Richter,
Don’t Throw Feathers at Chickens

Texian Humor
The only thing a Texan fears more than a
Mexican with a knife
is a Yankee with a U-Haul.

Texans always lie. We have to.

Texas Quotes

It was one of those days when God was creating the earth... He was working on Texas as darkness fell at the end of the day, and as he prepared to quit He gave the Great Plains of West Texas a smoothing stroke and said to Himself, "In the morning I'll come back and make it pretty like the rest of the world, with lakes and streams and mountains and trees." But the next morning when He returned, it had hardened like concrete. As He thought about having to tear it all down and make it over, He had a happy thought: "I know what I'll do", He said, "I'll just make some people who like it this way." And that is how it came about that the people who live in the Panhandle like it this way.
- George Autry 1899-1960
Lifetime Member, Panhandle-Plains Historical Society


"Next to music there is nothing that lifts the spirits and strengthens the soul more than a good bowl of chili. Congress should pass a law making it mandatory for all restaurants serving chili to follow a Texas recipe."
- Harry James (1916-1983) band leader and trumpeter


"It can only truly be Texas red if it walks the thin line just this side of indigestibility: Damning the mouth that eats it and defying the stomach to digest it, the ingredients are hardly willing to lie in the same pot together."
- John Thorne, Simple Cooking


"Chili concocted outside of Texas is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing. One of the first things I do when I get home to Texas is to have a bowl of red. There is simply nothing better."
- Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States


Texian Satire

Texas Farmer

Green Garden Grass Snakes can be dangerous.


Texian Humor
A sad Texan once prayed,
"I wish it would rain -- not so much for me,
'cause I've seen it -- but for my 7-year-old."

Don't call us Texans a bunch of hicks.
Most of us are better educated than you
and a whole lot nicer to boot.
We just talk that way to piss you off.

Texas Quotes:
Don Rottenberg:
"There are still places where people think that

There is a growing feeling that perhaps Texas is really
another country, a place where the skies, the disasters, the diamonds,
the politicians, the women, the fortunes, the football players
and the murders are all bigger than anywhere else. - Pete Hamill

Texas Trivia:
From Spy Magazine, May/June 1996

"Of all 50 states, Texas imports the most criminals from other state's prisons."

Texas has the "highest total energy consumption" (10 trillion BTUs per year) of all the states.

"More cowboy boots are manuafactured in El Paso than anywhere else on earth."

In Texas, it is "illegal to milk another person's cow."

"In San Antonio, it is illegal for both sexes to flirt or respond to flirtation using the eys and/or hands."

"In El Paso, churches, hotels, halls of assembly, stores, markets, banking rooms, railroad depots and saloons are required at the expense of the owners to provide spittoons of a kind and number to efficiently contain expectorations into them."

Historical Timeline

65 million years ago, a meteorite traveling at 150,000 miles per hour crashed into the ocean on what is now the northern coast of the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. The impact created a huge tidal wave so powerful that it carried debris as far as the banks of the Brazos River, where scientists have recently discovered remnants following extensive water erosion.

17,000 years ago, bands of hunters entered North America by crossing a landbridge formed when ocean levels were lowered during the formation of continent-sized glaciers.

12,000 years ago, the first immigrants arrived in the region now called Texas and settled on the shores of Lubbock Lake.

3,500 years ago, corn farmers settled near the Presidioinan area known as La Junta de los Ríos (the meeting of the rivers) where the Río Grande and Mexico's Río Concho meet. This area is believed to be the oldest continuously cultivated farmland in Texas.
