Texas was a slave state and joined the Confederacy on February 1, 1861. As with the other slave states, they saw President Lincoln as a threat to slavery despite Lincoln's assurances that he would not interfere with slavery in the states where it already existed. He made good on his promise the the border states like Maryland that did not join the Confederacy but were allowed to keep their slaves.

The Confederate States of America. Texas sent several regiments to serve with the Confederate Army. Several of them served under General John Bell Hood in what became the famous "Texas Brigade".
