Stand Along The Former Border Of Texas At This Fascinating Historic Landmark
The state of Texas is nothing less of an institution in the United States, but few people realize that Texas was once its own country. For a brief decade in the 19th century, the Lone Star State had its own currency, flags, and boundaries to indicate where Texas ended and the United States began. The Republic of Texas used granite markers to indicate borders, and there is exactly one that remains standing today. Read on to learn more about this historic landmark in Texas.
