There are deserts, a pine forest and the Rio Grande, a river that forms its border with Mexico. And always remember The Alamo. The Battle of Alamo was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. Mexican troops launched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio, killing all of the defenders. Santa Anna’s cruelty during the battle inspired many to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836, ending the revolution. In its biggest city, Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts houses works by well-known Impressionist and Renaissance painters, while Space Center Houston offers interactive displays engineered by NASA. Austin, the capital, is known for its eclectic music scene and LBJ Presidential Library. The lone star signifies Texas as a former independent republic, and as a reminder of the state’s struggle for independence from Mexico.
