1. First Flag of the Republic of Texas Marker
Inscription.  After winning independence from Mexico in 1836 Texas claimed the Oklahoma Panhandle and flew the newly designed Texas flag. The first flag of the Republic of Texas featured a gold five-point star, or lone star, in the middle. During the struggle for independence Indian removal to Indian territory continued. The most infamous removal occurred in 1838, when the Cherokee Nation was driven west to present day Oklahoma. The journey has since become known as the Trail of Tears.
