Texas Trivia

Texas is our second largest state in land mass, right after Alaska. Therefore, there is a long legacy of large Texas trivia! The name Texas comes from a Hasinai Indian word meaning friends or allies – Tejas. Did you know that you could drive a car 65 miles per hour for ten hours and never leave Texas? It is more than 700 miles between El Paso and Houston. The state flower of Texas is the bluebonnet. The tallest mountain in Texas is the Guadalupe Peak. Texas is often known as the Lone Star State and their logo is “Don’t Mess with Texas.”

The explorer Moscoso discovered much of eastern Texas after DeSoto died of a high fever. Texas was the 28th state to join the union. Texas has the distinction of being the only state that has had six different flags flown over it: Spain, France, Mexico, The Republic of Texas, The Confederate States and the United States.

Sam Houston, a very famous Texan, was nicknamed The Raven by the Cherokee Indians after he left home to live with them when he was young. The Alamo was a battle where the defenders of Texas fell to the Mexicans. The Alamo is a beloved historical site of Texans and located in San Antonio.
