Annexation: Celebrating Texas Statehood.  The annexation of Texas as the twenty-eighth member of the United States of America had a profound impact on world events and the course of democracy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition narrates the story of Texas as a Mexican colony and Republic, its campaign to join the United States, the vote for annexation, and the consequences of that vote.

Humanities Texas advances heritage, culture, and education as the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
