About Eagle Pass TX

According to the census taken in 2010, the population of Eagle Pass, Texas was 26,225 people, and by 2013 had increased to approximately 27,708 people. The community of Eagle Pass is the seat of the County of Maverick. Eagle Pass borders on the community of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico that is across and southwestern from the Rio Grande River. The Piedras Negras and Eagle Pass metro region is one of the six binational metro regions on the American-Mexican border. Eagle Pass, Texas is located 131 miles west of San Antonio, Texas, and 102 northwest of Laredo, Texas.

Eagle Pass was the first American community on the Rio Grande River. Originally, during the Mexican-American War, it served as a temporary outpost for the militia in Texas and was known as Camp Eagle Pass. In 1849, a few miles upstream from Camp Eagle Pass, the US Army established Fort Duncan. The supervision of the construction of the fort was handled by a Captain named Sidney Burbank. The fort named in honor of a Colonel named James Duncan who valiantly fought in the Mexican War. Under protection from the fort, trade in the area thrived after the war was stopped. The community of Eagle Pass was named as the result of the contour of the hills through which the Rio Grande River flows bore a remarkable resemblance to the outstretched wings of an eagle.

During the 1840’s, the location of this new settlement was established by a General named William Leslie. A trading post known as Eagle Pass was opened by a man named Rick Pawless in 1850. Maverick County was founded in 1871, and Eagle Pass was appointed to be the county seat. A railroad was established, churches and schools opened during the remainder of the 1800’s, as ranching and mercantile industries grew.

A few miles upstream from Camp Eagle Pass in 1849, the presumably permanent Fort Duncan was established by the US Army. The construction of Fort Duncan was supervised by a Captain named Sidney Burbank, which was named in honor of a Colonel named James Duncan, who had fought in the Mexican War. With the protection of the fort trade flourished following the Mexican-American War. The fort served as an outpost against the hostile Apache Indians and was close to the trail of westward immigration to California. The fort was abandoned and reopened many times. The fort also served as the base of operations against the border assaults, in 1850, that was arranged by a man named Juan Cortina.

During the Civil War in the US, Fort Duncan was held by the Confederate Army. En-route to offer the service of his troop to Maximillian in Mexico, a General named Joseph Shelby, stopped at Fort Duncan and buried in the Rio Grande, which was the last Confederate flag to have flown over his men in 1865. Another Colonel named James Gonzalo de Esprite trained African American and Seminole scouts at Fort Duncan in 1870. Fort Duncan was activated as a training camp during WW I. The community Eagle Pass purchased the fort and continues to operate a children’s library and a museum at the location, known as Eduardo Castillo in 1938. The gunfighter and rancher named King Fisher lived in Eagle Pass until he was murdered during an ambush in San Antonio in 1884.
