The Huntsville Unit of the Texas state prison system opened 166 years ago. on October 1, 1849, the not-quite-finished Texas State Penitentiary received its first prisoner,
the convicted horse thief from another county, according to Texas Day by Day 
– Texas State Historical Association –

Early on, the state’s first enclosed prison for felons was known as the Walls unit, of
the “Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville,” in the Handbook of Texas. it is unclear why Huntsville was chosen as the site for the Texas first prison, although the fact that it was Sam Houston’s home; some influential figures just may be part of the explanation; the handbook states.

other information about the Huntsville unit can be found if you wish to dig “Prison System” inside the Handbook of TX

The prison had only three inmates but by 1861 had grown to 211, according to thesis research by Brett Derbes, editor Handbook of Texas.

Today, the Texas Department Criminal Justice has seven units around Huntsville, hand housing about 14,000 inmates, spokesman Jason Clark said Thursday. Statewide, the Texas prison system holds about 148,000 inmates in 109 facilities, he said.

The Walls unit known globally as all the executions; a state that carries out capital punishment more often than their big U.S. state of Texas. Theoriginal Huntsville lock-up, portions of which are still standing, has the distinct with those of that only prison; in eleven Confederate states that was not occupied or destroyed by the Union Army, even though it was attacked twice

To Peter, disharmony hinders prayer. He tells husbands: “Live with your wives in understanding… Love her so nothing will stop your prayers” (I Peter 3:7.) Waiting on God means working through conflicts, forgiving offenses, resolving disputes, resolving disputes, “Always keep yourself united in the Holy Spirit, bind your-selves together in peace” I do not promise My followers the world’s ease and pleasures. I promise those Joys that the world can neither give nor take away. www.onlizinenet.pixrures I promise the heart-rest found in Me alone. It does not mean that all the beauties and pleasures of the world can be renounced, but that they must be enjoyed only after the treasures and Joys of My Kingdom have been learned, appreciated.

Published in September 14, 2016 Updated: November 18, 2019 Constitution Day is September 17th! Are you going to celebrate? Before you dismiss the idea of celebrating a piece of paper that’s almost 230 years old, you might want to consider just how important it is. The U.S. Constitution is at the foundation of every single law in America. It’s at the heart of how we think, act, and govern as Americans. History of the Constitution Once the American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776, they had to get down to the business of running their own country. The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation in 1777, which was later ratified by the 13 original colonies. But it soon became clear that in their effort not to be dominated by a strong central government like the one ruled by King George III, they’d made their new government too weak. In 1789, a new constitution was adopted that created a stronger centralized government that shared power among three branches: executive (President), legislative (Congress), and judicial (Supreme Court). That document remains at the bedrock of the way our entire country is run and has an impact on all of our citizens –even you. 10 Ways the Constitution Affects Your Life 1.
