Daniel F. Rankin Jr:, who recen-
tly received a masters degree in
history from Stephen F. Austin
University, was guest speaker at
the Wednesday noon meeting of the
Rusk Rotary club.
"Texas won its independence in
1836, but did not receive statehood
until 1846. General Sam Houston
made a move for Texas to be an-
nexed but ran into problems that
took two years to overcome. Op-
positions from the northern and
eastern states plus Mexico, France
and England caused many
problems. The slavery fraction and
trade with foreign countries also
contributed to the delay in Texas
becoming a state. Texas had
become rather heavily in debt and
in moves for statehood, the United
States did not want to assume that
burden. Texas kept the debt, but
was able to keep their public lands
when it became a state in 1846,"
stated the speaker.
It was also pointed out that
General Houston, M.B. Lamar and
J.D. Henderson worked during the
10 year period along with many
others who made many trips to
Washington to work toward
statehood for Texas.
