  • Battle of Gonzales
  • FIRE!!!
  • Mexico wanted to build a large and good relation ship with the U.S. To start building the relationship Mexico welcomes large numbers of Anglo-American immigrants into their territory. Only if they changed to the catholic church and spoke Spanish could they live there, but obviously, being stubborn Americans, they didn't adjust to these new customs.
  • Battle of the Alamo
  • The new declared dictator of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, declared himself dictator because recognizing that the “American” Texans were likely to use his rise to power as an excuse to secede, Santa Anna ordered the Mexican military to begin disarming the Texans whenever possible. This proved more difficult than expected, and on October 2, 1835, Mexican soldiers attempting to take a small cannon from the village of Gonzales encountered stiff resistance from a hastily assembled militia of Texans. After a brief fight, the Mexicans retreated and the Texans kept their cannon.
  • Battle of San Jacinto
  • What!!! NO
  • The Battle of Gonzales was the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution. It was fought near Gonzales, Texas, on October 2, 1835, between rebellious Texian settlers and a detachment of Mexican army soldiers. 
  • Texas Statehood
  • The Battle of the Alamo was between the Mexican force and the group of Texan volunteer soldiers that occupied the Alamo. The date is 1835 and the heat is on. Texas is fighting for independence from Mexico. Texas has sent volunteer soldiers to the Alamo to protect. There's 200 against thousands when Mexico arrived to take the place over. In the End Mexico won, however the 200 solders held them off for a whopping 13 days!!!
  • Did you know that the Battle of San Jacinto only lasted twenty minutes? The result of the war?...630 Mexicans were killed and 730 taken prisoner. Texans only had 9 killed or mortally wounded; thirty were less seriously wounded.  This battle was crucial to the fate of three republics. Mexico would never get back the lost territory, in spite of sporadic incursions during the 1840s.
