Texas and the Civil War
Answer:  Texas was not brought into the Union by treaty.  There was an attempt to do this in 1844, but the U.S. Senate refused to ratify the treaty.  Texas was annexed by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1845.  Neither the failed annexation treaty nor the Resolution of Annexation reserved any right for Texas to secede.  In fact, the treaty would have made Texas a mere territory, but the Joint Resolution gave immediate statehood.  In addition, the Resolution provided that Texas might divide itself into as many as five states, if it so desired.  In 1845, Texas did not avail itself of this provision of the Resolution, and it is not clear whether the provision would still be operable after that time.
