    1844 · German Immigration to Texas
    Age 4
    Over 7,000 German immigrants arrived in Texas. Some of these new arrivals died in epidemics; those that survived ended up living in cities such as San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston. Other German settlers went to the Texas Hill Country and formed the western portion of the German Belt, where new towns were founded: New Braunfels and Fredericksburg.
    Age 6
    U.S. acquires vast tracts of Mexican territory in wake of Mexican War including California and New Mexico.
    1850 · Compromise of 1850
    Age 10
    The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.
