Sam Houston’s Presidential Inaugural Speech, Republic of Texas, 1836

The Republic of Texas lasted just under a decade from 1836-1845.

This speech was given just after the victory by Houston’s troops in the battle at San Jacinto.

Tensions were still high and the future of the newly independent nation was uncertain.

We have included a copy of the speech as well as questions and answers for students.
