1846-, Texas, Journals of the House
Journal of the House of Representatives of the Legislature of the State of Texas: bi-annual, (irregular, with occasional multiple sessions), title
varies, var. state printers, 1847–, series continues. (Prior to becoming part of the United States, the area comprising present-day Texas was governed
successively by France, Spain and Mexico. The Texans began their breakaway from Mexico with the formation of a provisional government on November 13,
1835. This government had no legislative body, but its delegates, meeting in a “consultation,” or convention, adopted the English common law,
established trial by jury, and enacted measures to secure individuals in their land titles. On 2 March 1836, a convention of delegates declared independence
from Mexico under the rubric of the Republic of Texas. Actual independence was achieved as the result of the Battle of San Jacinto on 21 April 1836. The
first Congress of the Republic of Texas met in October of 1836. From the beginning Texans sought annexation by the United States, but this was held
off for a decade by anti-slavery forces in the existing union that didn’t want another slave state. After several unsuccessful attempts, Texas formally
accepted annexation by the United States in July of 1945, an act that was the immediate cause of the Mexican-American War. Final annexation became
effective 29 December 1845. Texas at that time comprised a much larger area containing parts of present-day New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and
Oklahoma; all of which areas were severed off as the entities named became states in their own time. The first session of the Texas statehood
legislature was in February 1846.)
