Storyboard Text

  • Did you know that in December of 1835, during Texas’ war for independence from Mexico, a group of Texan volunteer soldiers occupied the Alamo, a former Franciscan mission located near the present-day city of San Antonio?
  • Though due to the many deaths like James Bowie, William Travis, David Crockett, and many more ranging from 182-257 Texan deaths, meanwhile Mexico lost around 600. Now you may think that Texas secured this victory, but that is wrong.
  • Texans held Gen. Santa Anna off for thirteen days. On March 6th, the Texans were beaten. Santa Anna slaughtered everyone except a few. Among which was Susannah Dickinson, wife of captain Almaron Dickinson who perished in the battle. That's all for today, see you later!
  • Join on this nice day as we talk about the Battle of Gonzales. On October 2, 1835, the growing tensions between Mexico and Texas erupt into extreme violence when Mexican soldiers attempt to disarm the people of Gonzales, causing people to fight for their independence. Therefore, creating the Texan war for independence.
  • Thankfully, Texas won this battle, but this lead to many to come. There were no Texans killed in this battle, but mexico had casualties (I think two). Even though there were not many deaths in this battle, there were definitely many sure to come.
