GETTING TO KNOW AUSTIN
The Republic of Texas was three years old in 1839, and she needed a capital. As the main instigator for Anglo-American settlement in Texas, Stephen F. Austin was a hero to most Texans, so when the capital site was found, the 7,735 acres, including the hamlet of Waterloo, were christened after Austin.
Sam Houston and several other Texans opposed the vulnerable placement of the Austin settlement. When Houston became president, he moved the capital to the more secure settlement of Houston. The president demanded that the archives placed in the capital be moved to Houston as well, but the Austin populace blatantly refused their president’s order. This denial of archives in 1842 became known as the Archive War, because Houston sent an armed force to Austin to get the archives, which was repulsed by the people. Austin was determined to stay in control of the power they’d been given.
In 1845, Texas joined the United States, and in 1846, the capital was officially moved back to Austin. By 1850, the population had reached 854, but forty-eight percent of these were slave-holders. Already, Austin was setting itself up for economic collapse with the impending Civil War. The population continued to swell as Austin’s agricultural worth attracted more plantation owners–with their slaves–to the area.
The Civil War did not directly ravage Austin as it did to unfortunate settlements like San Antonio. But the city experienced loss of many of their brave young men, as well as a shortage of necessities. After the Reconstruction had been instituted, over fifty percent of the city’s population was freed slaves.
The Christmas of 1871 brought a multicultural gift to Austin’s doorstep in the Houston and Texas Central Railway. The railroad transformed the settlement into a vital trading center in Western Texas, and brought to the population hundreds of Germans, Mexicans, Irish, and Swedes. By the mid-1870s, Austin had established itself firmly as a political and educational center, with 11,013 people behind its claim. The first University of Texas was planted in Austin, despite a hot dispute.
Segregation became a dangerous problem in Austin through the early 1900s, despite attempts at boycotting. Everything was designated as either a ‘white’ or ‘black’ house, restaurant, bathroom, hospital, schools. The Mexican population also suffered, but not nearly as badly as the 14,861 descendants of freed slaves who were treated as if the Civil War had not changed their lives, after all.
In the mid-1900s, steps were taken. Locally, U.T. Austin became the first major university in the South to admit African American undergraduates. In 1964, The United States Civil Rights act took away the legal support of racial discrimination in public accommodations.
By 2000, the population had grown to 656, 562 people, and Austin continues on the trend of excelling and growing to this day. You–your business–your office–your city are all woven together to make the future history of Austin a little brighter.
