For the Jessica's Crime album, see Gone to Texas (album). Gone to Texas (often abbreviated GTT), was a phrase used by Americans immigrating to Texas in the 19th century[1] often to escape debt[2] incurred during the Panic of 1819. Moving to Texas, which at the time was part of Mexico, was particularly popular among debtors from the South and West.[3] The phrase was often written on the doors of abandoned houses or posted as a sign on fences.[4] Recently, the Governor's Office of Economic Development has revised the use of "Gone to Texas" as part of its plan to attract businesses to Texas under its current advertising campaign "Texas. Wide Open For Business". References ^ National Gazette and Literary Register - December 29, 1825, "Col.
