Laredo was founded by the Spanish explorer, Pedro Sanchez, in 1755. It has the distinction in Texas of having served under seven flags. At one time Laredo was an independent republic called the Republic of the Rio Grande. The people in Laredo were loyal to the 1824 Mexican Constitution that General/President Santa Anna had trashed. The people then rose against Santa Anna, declaring themselves an independent Republic. The Mexican Army attacked Laredo and destroyed the Republic of the Rio Grande.
