The annexation of Texas as the 28th state of the United States of America had a profound impact on world events and the course of democracy in the 19th and 20th centuries. This 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.

Annexation is a traveling exhibition based on an exhibition of original artifacts and documents created by the Texas Capitol Visitors Center and produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

View the exhibit in the Confederate Reunion Grounds visitor center and enjoy refreshments hosted by the Friends of the Confederate Reunion Grounds.
