1836年德克萨斯人宣布从墨西哥独立,成立德克萨斯共和国,同年发生了着名的阿拉莫之围(siege of the Alamo),而吉姆鲍伊(Jim Bowie)和戴维克罗克特(Davy Crockett)则死于此次战役中。 别名「孤星之州」(Lone Star State)的德州于1845年添加联邦,成为美国第28州。德州是一个西班牙名字,取自于一个代表朋友或盟友的印地安字 。德州是美国第二大州,仅次于阿拉斯加州。虽然它是一个荒野、边远地区,但今日的德州是石油的主要生产州,而且是工产及金融的重要中心。研究德州的历史学家表示该州州花矢车菊对德州的象征意义就像是酢浆草之于爱尔兰。


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."
