Texas is the biggest state in the contiguous United States and the second-largest state in terms of land and population. 

The Spanish gave the Caddo people and the area where they settled in East Texas the name, which in Caddo means "friends" or "allies." 

Texas, a state in the South Central United States, is bordered by Mexico to the south, New Mexico to the west, Oklahoma to the north, Arkansas to the northeast, and Louisiana to the east. 

It is also surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the north. Texas has a 268,820 square mile area and a 24.7 million-person population, which is increasing.

San Antonio is the second-biggest city in the state and the seventh-largest in the nation, while Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth-largest city overall. 

The fourth-largest metropolitan regions in the United States are Dallas-Fort Worth and Greater Houston, respectively. El Paso and Austin, the state capital, are two other significant cities. 

The Lone Star State moniker refers to both Texas' status as an independent republic and its fight for independence from Mexico. Both the Texas State Seal and the Texas State Flag feature the "Lone Star" today.

The several nations that had governed over the region are whence the phrase "six flags over Texas" originated. The first European nation to lay claim to Texas was Spain. 

In Texas, France had a transient colony. The region was under Mexican administration until 1836 when Texas declared its independence and became a Republic. 

It became the 28th state to enter the Union in 1845. The acquisition of the state sparked a series of circumstances that resulted in the Mexican-American War in 1846. 

Texas, a slave state, announced its secession from the Union in the early months of 1861 and enlisted in the Confederate States of America for the duration of the American Civil War. Texas experienced a protracted period of economic stagnation following the war and its reassertion to the Union.

Cattle raising was one Texas business that prospered after the Civil War. Texas is linked to the cowboy stereotype because of its long history as an industry hub. Early in the 20th century, oil discoveries led to an economic boom in the state, which caused the state's economic fortunes to alter. 

Texas built a diverse economy in the middle of the 20th century that included several high-tech companies thanks to significant expenditures on its universities. Currently, it boasts more Fortune 500 firms than any other state in the United States.
