The Angelina River is formed by the junction of Barnhardt and Shawnee creeks three miles northwest of Laneville in southwest central Rusk County, Texas (at 32°01′N 94°50′W / 32.017°N 94.833°W / 32.017; -94.833{{#coordinates:32|01|N|94|50|W||| | |name= }}).

The river flows southeast for Script error: No such module "convert". and forms the boundaries between Cherokee and Nacogdoches, Angelina and Nacogdoches, and Angelina and San Augustine counties. It empties into the Neches River twelve miles north of Jasper in northwestern Jasper County (at 31°54′N 94°12′W / 31.900°N 94.200°W / 31.900; -94.200{{#coordinates:31|54|N|94|12|W||| | |name= }}).[1]

The Sam Rayburn Reservoir is on the southern part of the river.

History

The river was named for a native Hasinai girl whom Spanish missionaries called Angelina. It was well known to Spanish and French explorers and to missionaries in East Texas. Spanish land grants along the stream date back to the later eighteenth century, and there was considerable settlement in the area during the Mexican period.[1]

In 1832, the Battle of Nacogdoches spilled over onto the Angelina, when James Bowie ambushed the fleeing Mexican army at this river.

River traffic on the Angelina began to die in the 1880s with the arrival of the railroads. By 1900, the stream was no longer navigable. Farming and clear-cutting by the growing lumber industry in the river's watershed caused the river to silt up, and numerous sandbars formed along its course.[1]

Music

The Angelina River is mentioned in "Rivertown" by Texan Hayes Carll on his 2005 album Little Rock.
