I'm watching the Alamo and they call themselves Texians. When did that stop?

Do you mean Texicans?

I've never heard Texians, but letters from that time period often use Texicans.

I'm not reading the script but I'm hearing 'Texians'.

The term was quite common when the area known today as Texas was trying to become independant from Mexico and was used throughout the time that Texas was an independant nation.

James Michner wrote an excelent novel titled Texas that i just finished for the second time. Plenty of fact mixed with the story line.

You do know that Texas is just a suburb of Mexico, don't you?

It stopped around the mid 1800s. Yes it is a correct term. My family came to Texas a little before that andsettled in San Antonio and Harrisburg (Houston).

Don't insult me like that, Canuck!

Texians is correct as is Tejanos.

Remember Goliad, The Alamo, Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
