The first colony to see the coast of Texas in 1519 to 1821 was the Spanish

The first colony to see the coast of Texas in 1519 to 1821 was the Spanish. The Spanish had about 302 years to try to colonize Texas and settle in but didn’t accomplish. The didn’t accomplish because Texas had very poor use of geography, missions and hostile Native America. Their boats that were supposed to be there to see the land and check it out but got shipwrecked. The only people that survived were 4 out of 270 men and, one of them was Cabeza De Vaca. Cabeza De Vaca was the first Spaniard to live on our land. Like, every explorer he had a goal that was to settle Texas and be friends with the Native americans..
Another reason why Texas failed as a colony was distance. The distance from San Antonio to Mexico City was 700 miles. They would have to travel 2 months by a mule train to get there.
