Stephen F. Austin milita and the Mexican army?! We have to run!
The Mier y Teran Report
Mier y Teran Report:
The Law of April 6, 1830
NO U.S. IMMIGRANTS ALLOWED IN TEXAS!!!!
The Fredonian Rebellion was a rebel in against the Mexican Goverment in 1826. When Haden Edwards received his contract to bring 800 families to Texas near Nacodoches. He had promised not to bother the "old settlers", but he did not follow his promise and began charging the old settlers for taxes. When the Mexican Officials heard that news, they were angered and asked Austin's militia for help. As they were approaching, the Fredonian families heard and fled in fear. This is what is now known as the Fredonian Rebellion.
Battle of the Alamo
WE WILL WIN THIS BATTLE, SO DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED WHEN WE KILL THEM ALL!!!
The Mexican army was getting over considering in American influence,so they sent General Manuel de Mier y Terán to get a head count. Mier y Terán starts investigating tour in Larredo early 1828 and March 1 he finally arrives to San Antonio. He continued to tour, going to Nacogdoches and many more cities, taking head-count for Anglo Americans to Tejanos. When his final count was over, he counted 10 Anglo Americans to 1 Tejano. He wrote the Mier y Terán Report to write down his findings. It also had some recommendations to keep Mexican influence, such as inviting Europeans and Mexicans to settle in Texas.
The Goliad Massacre
The response caused by the Terán report, to decrease U.S.(better known as Anglo Americans) influence, was this law. It officially banned immigration to Texas(also known as Coahulia y Texas at this moment in time). It also suspended unfilled empresorio contracts, very few were lucky enough to keep , and the few was including Green DeWitt and Stephen F. Austin. The Mexican Goverment, to make sure no immigrants secretly come into Texas, they sent the military to the borders. One more thing is caused, such as taxing U.S. imports, and charging custom duties.
The Battle of San Jacinto
Texans are waiting in the trees for Mexican troops to arrive.
The Battle of the Alamo, one of the most historical events in Texas history, was really devastating. We lost this battle on March 6, 1836 with the worst loss. Early morning March 6, the Mexican army came an woke them up rudely by playing the song "El Degüello", a song meaning No Mercy. When the fighting was clearing up after including hands and weapons, almost all the defenders were killed. After the fighting, the noncombatants mostly survived. This was one of the saddest losses in Texas history. The battle cry you may know is "Remember the Alamo!"
During another battle, one that is important but not really talked about, the Texas rebels were captured by the Mexican army. A week passed with Texans working in poverty, as Urrea(a Mexican General) was granted permission to execute anyone who raised arms(weapons) to the Mexican Army. When they began shooting and killing multiple Texans, very few were able to escape by themselves. Some more, with the help on Francita Alavez, was able to escape to, so she is now known as Angel of Golliad. Over 400 hundred Texans were killed, including some captured just outside Victoria.
I AM DYING!!!! *cough cough*
The Battle of San Jacinto was the battle Texas won its independence. When Houston's army arrived to the river, they set up in the woods, so the could get ready to attack the Mexican army unexpectedly. The Mexican army arrived later that afternoon and surprisingly, get attacked. They fought for only 18 minutes. Then, Texas won the war and soon found Santa Anna hiding. They thought about murderig him for all the wrong he had done, but then Sam Houston explained his reasoning to not kill Santa Anna.
