In the 1870s, white Democrats wrested power back in the state legislature from the biracial coalition at the end of Reconstruction. It held power until after passage in the mid-1960s of national civil rights legislation enforcing constitutional rights of all citizens. In the early 20th century, the legislature passed bills to impose poll taxes, followed by white primaries; these measures effectively disfranchised most blacks, poor whites and Mexican Americans.[129][130] In the 1890s, 100,000 blacks voted in the state; by 1906, only 5,000 could vote.[145] As a result, the Democratic Party dominated Texas politics from the turn of the century, imposing racial segregation and white supremacy.

While far from the major battlefields of the American Civil War, Texas contributed large numbers of men and equipment to the rest of the Confederacy.[120] Union troops briefly occupied the state's primary port, Galveston. Texas's border with Mexico was known as the "backdoor of the Confederacy" because trade occurred at the border, bypassing the Union blockade.[121] The Confederacy repulsed all Union attempts to shut down this route,[120] but Texas's role as a supply state was marginalized in mid-1863 after the Union capture of the Mississippi River. The final battle of the Civil War was fought near Brownsville, Texas at Palmito Ranch[122] with a Confederate victory.

The state became notorious as a haven for people from other parts of the country who wanted to escape debt, criminal prosecution, or other problems. The culture in Texas during the later 19th century exhibited many facets of a frontier territory. Like most of the South, the Texas economy was devastated by the War. However, since the state had not been as dependent on slaves as other parts of the South it was able to recover more quickly. Indeed, "Gone to Texas" was a common expression for those fleeing the law in other states. Nevertheless, the state also attracted many businessmen and other settlers with more legitimate interests as well.
