The Texas Legation Papers, 1836-1845

Edited by Kenneth Stevens, Professor of History

TCU Press


The foundation of Texas, first as a nation and then the 28th U.S. state, is a historical event rich with lore. Stevens gathered 272 papers, previously hidden in Sam Houston’s private home, created in the nine years following the establishment of the Republic of Texas. Many of the letters are official conversations between representatives of Texas and the U.S. as the annexation process developed. Others papers describe conflicts with Mexico and the Native Americans living in the area.
