Texans by Blood, Sweat & Tears
For thousands of years Native Americans called the lands of Texas home. In 1528, the first Europeans happen upon Texas and in 1718 a Spanish expedition founded San Antonio. The 1800s witnessed an onslaught of settlers from around the world coming to Texas to build a future. Regardless of personal backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities, or religions, Texas required a toll paid in blood, sweat and tears.
