Texas’ Historical Milestones On This Day March 30th

On this day in Texas history, March 30th, several significant events took place that have shaped the state into what it is today. In 1846, Dallas County was founded in north central Texas, marking the beginning of a new era for the region. Just three years later, in 1849, The Marshall Texas Republican was established by Trenton A. and Frank J. Patillo, providing a voice for the people of Texas.

In 1870, U.S. President Grant signed the act to readmit Texas to Congressional representation, solidifying the state’s place in the Union. And in 1912, Karl May, a prominent writer whose works helped form the image of Texas and the Wild West in many European minds, passed away in Radebeul, Germany.
