The Republic of Texas PassportNo. 4 St. James
Whether you've lived in Texas your whole life or you're just now getting to know us, your story of Texas starts with the fundamentals. Explore the roots of Texas with your own Republic of Texas Passport™. This unique 40-page collection of historical documents, photos, and stories on the founding of the Republic of Texas will get you off on the right foot.
This small, softbound booklet is slightly larger than an authentic passport, and feels a lot better to hold. Special Fibermark La Creme paper gives the Passport’s cover the feeling and appearance of extra fine leather.
You’ll be equally impressed with what’s inside.
The first few pages replicate the functionality of a contemporary passport, but are stylized as being issued by the former Republic of Texas.
The pages that follow the issuance page are likewise replicas of a contemporary passport. Use the nine blank visa “stamp” pages to make notes about your own travel across Texas.
Beyond the notes pages, you’ll find the most useful part of your Republic of Texas Passport: a 26-page abridged history of the Republic, authored by distinguished professor and Texas historian A. Ray Stephens. This is an easy reading narrative of the period spanning 1821 to 1845. Maps and other illustrations supplement the written history.
