A Brief History of Texas
- The state of Texas has a colorful history that dates back close to five hundred years. Originally part of the Spanish-controlled Mexico, it gained independence with Mexico in the 1820’s and then seceded from Mexico to become its own independent nation just twenty-some years later. It became a U.S. state in 1845, an act which ultimately caused the Mexican War in 1846. The Mexican War would be a training ground for many prominent generals in the Civil War, including Grant, Lee, Longstreet, Jackson, and many more. Both Houston and San Antonio are in the top-ten largest cities in the U.S. by population, and the state overall is home to over 26 million residents, second-most in the U.S. It is also the second-largest state by total area, losing to only Alaska in terms of total size.

What to Expect when Shipping to or from Texas
- The state of Texas has the second-largest population among all 50 states, and with two cities in the top 10 largest by population in the country, it’s not surprising that Houston and San Antonio are also two of the most popular auto transport locations in the country. Both sit along I-10, a major east-west interstate that runs through the southern part of the country, and both connect to major cities in Texas such as Austin, Dallas, Forth Worth and Laredo. Laredo connects with San Antonio via I-35, which also runs up to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and then up into Oklahoma. I-20 runs east-west through the Dallas/Fort Worth area, acting as a more northern cross-country interstate to give carriers more options, and connects to I-10 in San Antonio (via I-35) as well as in Houston via I-45. In other words, it’s usually going to be fairly cheap and fairly quick to ship into or out of the major cities of Texas.
