Texas was an independent 1836-1845. Vermont was independent 1777

- 1791, at which time it was officially annexed and ratified the

U.S. Constitution. California was technically independent (not

recognized by the U.S. but not under the rule of either Mexico or

the U.S.) for about a month in 1846. Hawai'i was an independent

nation recognized by the United States, Britain and France until it

was annexed by the United States in 1898.
