State of Lincoln proposed in 1869 in Texas, south and west of the Colorado River

The State of Lincoln was proposed in 1869 after the U.S. Civil War to be carved out of the territory of Texas from the area south and west of the state's Colorado River. Unlike many other Texas division proposals of the Reconstruction period this one was presented to Congress, but like the others it failed.
