November 25, 1850. Texas’ governor signs the Compromise of 1850, in which Texas gives up its claim to land that includes more than half of what is now New Mexico, about a third of Colorado, a corner of Kansas, the Oklahoma Panhandle, and a small portion of Wyoming in exchange for the United States’ assumption of $10 million in debt; Texas keeps its public lands.
