Description and Holding Information
1836-, Texas Session Laws
Acts of the Congress of the Republic of Texas/Legislature of the State of Texas passed by the ___ General Assembly: title varies, 1836–, var. state
printers, 1836–. (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
that didn’t want another slave state. After several unsuccessful attempts, Texas formally accepted annexation by 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 named
entities became states in their own time. The first session of the Texas statehood legislature was in February 1846.)
