3. Texas

    A long time ago Texas was part of Mexico. The Mexican government did not want any Americans to move to Texas. But a man named Stephen Austin brought a lot of people to Texas. They built towns. The Mexican government was not happy and a war began. The Americans did not want to be part of Mexico. Many years passed. Finally, Texas was free. It became a state in 1836.

    Texans are proud of their history. Many people from Mexico live in Texas today. They are an important part of the state's history. A popular kind of food in Texas is called "Tex-Mex." This means that it is a mixture of American and Mexican food.
