The state of Texas has some characteristics that distinguish it from all the others quite markedly. First of all the size, it is among the largest states in the USA and, compared to the European ones, it is the largest compared to the others. This creates a large spatial dimension but also generates inevitable internal differences.

Texas lies to the south and borders Oklahoma to the north, Louisiana and Arkansas to the east, New Mexico to the west and Mexico to the south.

The state has river marshes, alongside grasslands, subtropical forests but also mountainous, arid or desert areas.

In the language of the native Indians of that territory, the word Texas means "friends".

Historical notes

Texas was inhabited by several tribes of Indians native to those lands, following the arrival of the Europeans, Texas was conquered first by the Spanish, then by the French and finally by the Anglo-Americans. Texas also passed under the dominion of Mexico from which it became independent in the early 1800s. A slave state, Texas sided with the Confederates during the Civil War.
