Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi was founded in 1839 by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney known as Kinney's Trading Post, or Kinney's Ranch. It was a small trading post that sold supplies to a Mexican revolutionary army camped about 25 miles (40 km) west.  In July 1845, General Zachary Taylor commanded his troops to set up camp there in preparation for war with Mexico, where they remained until March 1846. Approximately one year later, the settlement was named Corpus Christi and was incorporated on 9 September 1852.  Then in 1926 The Port of Corpus Christi was opened and in 1941 the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station was commissioned.
