From the TX State Library and Archive Commision website:

When all attempts to arrive at a formal annexation treaty failed,

<> Neither this joint resolution or the ordinance passed by the Republic of Texas' Annexation Convention gave Texas the right to secede


lots of Texans STILL think they have the right to secede (not that *i* would want to stop them)

... interesting ,to Me, bit of trivia .... in his memoirs, Grant says -he- thought most of the Confederacy should be allowed to secede ... those states that were original colonies .. those that were purchased later --maybe. but NOT Texas because it was 'purchased' with Army blood.
