Houston was elected as the First President of the Republic of Texas. By 1845, Texas was admitted to The Union. He was then the first man from Texas to be elected to The United States Senate. In 1859, Houston became Governor of Texas. Sam Houston fought hard to prevent Texas from seceding from the Union. For this, he was deposed in 1861, when he refused to swear Allegiance to The Confederacy. Sam Houston’s health then quickly deteriorated, until finally he was struck with a severe chill which developed into Pneumonia. Sadly, he passed away in 1863, before he could see His beloved Texas still a part of America. Sam Houston died quietly with his devoted wife, Margaret by his side. Houston’s last words were, “Texas, Texas. Margaret”. Sam Houston's poem reads, " Texas --- Women is lovely to the sight, as gentle as the dews of eve, as bright as mornings earliest light, And spotless in the snow of Heaven. - Sam Houston"
