  • I love it here!
  • I'm so glad you settlers decided to come; now Texas's population is much larger!
  • Wow, there are 7,000 U.S. settlers here now!
  • I despise these new laws!
  • Mexico has just enforced new laws. You must convert to a different religion, sign papers in Spanish, and stop practicing slavery
  • Meanwhile, the U.S. debated over Texas's annexation
  • Henry Clay: If Texas is annexed, it will lead to war, and will cost us our integrity!
  • Mirabeau B. Lamar: The annexation will preserve slavery and help Texas grow into an agricultural community!
  • What a fool!
  • We shall form a provisional government
  • And call for our independence from Mexico!
  • Uh oh! It looks like the Mexican government has deployed troops to attack.
  • We must fight for Texas's independence 
  • Many years after winning the war and gaining independence, Texas became a U.S. State in 1845
