Storyboard Text

  • Philip Nolan
  • Battle of Medina
  • Gutierrez-Magee
  • We must free Mexico and Texas!
  • Philip Nolan was falsely accused of being the first filibuster, when really he just wanted to get rich by capturing wild Mustangs. But Spain thought he was a rebel spy.
  • The Cry of Delores 
  • The Battle of Medina took place in 1813 and was part of the Mexican revolution. It took place around 20 miles South from San Antonio.
  • James Long
  • The Gutierrez-Magee expedition was started when Father Hidalgo gave the Cry of Dolores and inspired the pair to free Mexico and Texas. Even though they failed, they inspired many others to finish what they had started.
  • Jean Lafitte
  • Father Hidalgo gave his infamous speech to open the eyes of the people of Spain's cruel tyranny and to encourage the people to free Mexico. He also inspired the Gutierrez-Magee expedition. 
  • James Long, leader of the Long Expedition, was a filibuster because he too wanted to conquer and free Mexico and Texas.
  • Jean Lafitte was a pirate and "worked" with both Spain and Texas. In 1820, he and his men attacked US ships and left the area.
