What are these states?
Texas is the only state that can legally divide into as many as 5 states, giving Texas it's same number of representatives and 10 senators. Texas has never taken the opportunity. However, every 2 years during the Legislative session, it's become a tradition for someone to introduce a bill to that effect. It usually gets killed.
Texas is the only state that can fly it's flag at the same height as the U.S. flag.
Only state to come into the nation by virtue of treaty, not as a territory or by conquest. Texas was an independent republic for nearly 10 years.
Only state that can claim offshore territory up to 10 miles. Every other state with a shoreline can only claim 2 miles.
Sam Houston, first President of the Republic of Texas, is the only man in U.S. history to be Governor of 2 states- Tennessee and Texas.
Texas is the only state allowed to have it's own army and navy.
Texas was recognized as an independent country by the United States, Great Britain, France, Spain, the Netherlands.
Texas was the only state to secede by vote of its citizens.
Texas used to own all or parts of present day Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming.
They don't exist. At least not yet. Texas may divide itself, but that's very unlikely.
North South East and West? tongue in cheek. I have no idea and never heard
of it--now if you are talking Canada--Quebec is our biggest trouble. : }
they were going to split it into north south east and west. it will never happen just like they will never split up California or Quebec
I live in Texas and at the moment, we are whole. If at its inception it was going to be split differently, I thought that part of it was going to be Louisiana's and a portion would belong to Mexico but unfortunately, I don't know much more.
Good luck in your quest for knowledge!
Texas is the only state that has a provision in its own constitution, and with the U.S. government, that it could split into as many as five states if the state legislature decided to. So it could happen, but for the most part everyone here is satisfied enough with being a large, diverse state that it takes forever to drive out of.
I don't think it's documented what the states would be, but they'd probably all center around a metropolitan area. There would probably be a Houston state and a Dallas State, a San Antonio/Austin state, a Lubbock/Amarillo state, and maybe a Rio Grande Valley state along the Mexican border.
