Texas became an independent republic in 1836, but it joined the US as a state almost 10 years later.
Hawaii had a monarchy before becoming a state of the US.
Question, to all you historians and US citizens. How many states of the US were strong armed, tricked into, bribed or by some other nefarious means
became a state of the US?
Obviously, adding states has not really been an issue, but seceding has been.
Do you support a States right to secede if it feels that the federal government has become too powerful or some other important issue. Would you
fight in a civil war to keep that state from seceding or help your state to secede?
