I actually don’t know what is the true legality of this thing, but when I was growing up in TX (admittedly in the dark ages, )we were certainly taught that when TX joined the union, we retained the right to leave the union if we weren’t happy with it.

Same here basil. I also took 7th grade Texas history in the dark ages and we were told the same thing. Because Texas was a Republic when we joined the US that we were different and could opt out if we chose.

One poster below pointed in the right direction ~ TEXAS, as well as every other state that'd decided to join the Confederacy found itself involved in RECONSTRUCTION which entailed "readmission" ~ and there were, of course, "conditions" ~ so whatever earlier deal they'd had with the Union, they were readmitted with a different deal.

Losing a war is always bad.
