The Early History of Land Grants in Texas & the Disposition of Public Lands Part 2

Course Description

We will discuss the history of the settlement of Texas by land grants, railroads, and surveys, how Texas got its shape, and settlers perfected their title of ownership in the 1700 and 1800's. Six flags over Texas also meant six counties claimed ownership until 1836 when Texas won her independence from Mexico. Their claim to Texas land had to be honored in some areas and still is taken in to consideration in the perfection of titles to individuals.
