Dallas

dallasDallas was claimed by the Spain in the 18th century. That made Dallas part of ‘New Spain’. Just to be clear Dallas didn’t existed back in the early 18th century, it’s the place where Dallas would be build that became part of New Spain. Well in 1821 Mexico declared independence from Spain and in 1836 the ‘Republic of Texas’ became independent.
What Dallas is today was just a settlement back in 1839. Dallas grew and grew and in 1856 Dallas became a real city and it still is today! Well enough history for now.
