Texas Reports

What's Inside this Collection.

Texas Reports

The Texas Reports contain decisions of the Supreme Court of the State of Texas beginning in 1846. The decisions are fascinating not only from a legal standpoint, but also because they provide a vibrant view of Texas's culture and politics throughout its history as part of the United States and the Confederate States of America. Of special interest are the Reconstruction-era volumes which illuminate changes in the Court under the unpopular Constitution of 1869.
