    1848 - The U.S. Congress passed an act allowing Texas to move its eastern boundary from the west bank of the Sabine River to the middle of the river.

    1855 - Governor Elisha Pease authorized James Hughes Callahan to cross the Rio Grande into Mexico. The alleged purpose was to punish Apache Indians that had raided in Texas and then fled to Mexico.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
