Actually Texas was an independent country. The flag you saw was most likely on one of our navy
ships that has not received word of our inclusion in the US. After all it took 3 years to find out that our slaves were freed.
Texas was actually one of the trendsetting countries that agreed to hand over our independence and vast natural resources to the US in exchange for military bases.
The program worked so well for the US that it has expanded the program over the last 150 years to Central America
, the Middle East, and Asia
. I hear Australia
is on the short list for future expansion...
