"The Marriage of Texas," New Orleans Crescent Daily, ca. 1846. This illustrated
poem comments on recent events in Texas. The poem, whose language is avowedly
racist, directly mentions British abolitionism as a reason why Texas should join the
American Union. The drawing symbolizes the marriage between the youthful star,
Texas, and the bride, the United States, presided over by the parson (evidently
John Tyler). The Mexican eagle is a mere spectator. Courtesy A. J. Houston Collection,
Archives Division, Texas State Library, Austin.
