They say that six flags flew over Texas, but not so in Laredo. The town was once the capital of the Republic of the Rio Grande, which was made up of three Mexican states that sought to secede from Mexico in 1840. Although the revolution fell apart within one year, Laredo still flies the flag of the failed republic as its city flag. This time in Laredo’s history is remembered at the Republic of the Rio Grande Museum, located in a historic building in downtown Laredo. The museum features displays of photographs, rifles, and housewares that were common in the 1830’s.
