Storyboard Text

  • Mexico Welcomes Anglo-American Immigrants 
  • Welcome to Mexico!
  • 1835 New Dictator of Mexico 
  • I am overthrowing the constitution and making myself dictator!
  • Battle of Gonzales 
  • Come and Take it! 
  • The Mexicans welcomed Anglo-American immigrants into Texas because they hoped that they would become loyal Mexican citizens. The new immigrants did not adjust like the Mexicans thought they would. Instead they spoke English, made their own schools, and traded more with the United States.
  • Battle of The Alamo
  • We lost! We must be motivated to win the next!
  • The President of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna overthrew the constitution and made himself dictator. One of his actions against the Texans was he began disarming them. 
  • Battle of San Jacinto
  • That's the shortest battle I've ever been in!
  • The Battle of Gonzales was the battle to start the Texas Revolution. The first shots were fired in this battle. The reason this all started was because the Mexicans wanted to take away the Texans canon. 
  • Texas Statehood
  • Even thought the Americans get beaten badly they use the loss to their advantage and as a motivator.  It really actually helps motivate the army as they say Remember The ALAMO! 
  • This battle only lasted less than 20 minutes. Only 9 Texans were killed and 30 were wounded. But 1,360 Mexicans were either killed or taken prisoner. 
  • Texas became the 28th state in December of 1845. It took over a year for Texas to become a state because it was a slave state. The government didn't want an uneven number of slave states vs. non-slave states. They wanted them to be equal.
  • We are going to wait for a decade before we make Texas a state.
