Debt in Texas history?

After the many wars that Texas fought to gain their independence from Mexico they had alot of dept. Sam Houston was the first president of the Republic of Texas. He helped Texas get out of some of the dept but not all of it. Since each president could only have 2 years per term Sam Houston could not be elected again. The second president of Texas was M. B. Lamar, he however put Texas in more dept than what is was after Sam Houston's first term. After M. B. Lamar's 2 year term Sam Houston became the president of the Republic of Texas. Again Sam Houston helped Texas out of dept but not completely. The 4th term president of the Republic of Texas was Anson Jones. Jones was not president long before Texas became the 28th state of the Unites States. The United States helped Texas out of dept. When Texas wanted to be annexed be the United States some Americans refused because they didn't want to pay the dept that Texas was in. At some point Texas was annexed by the United States, and then became dept free.

What did Mirabeau B Lamar contribute to the state of Texas?

His Bum! Another ridiculous answer above. Mirabeau B. Lamar fought gallantly at the Battle of San Jacinto. He then served in Texas President Burnet's cabinet, and after President Houston's first term (he could not succeed himself in early term limits), he was elected President of the Republic of Texas. He was a visionary who had positives and negatives too long to list here. He and his Congress put Texas in about a 3 million dollar debt by over spending. He opposed annexation. Again in retrospect it would have been preferable to joining the Union, then seceding. Nevertheless, after statehood he fought in the Mexican War, then served in the Texas Legislature. He died in the service to the United States as a diplomat in 1859.
