*sees Anglo's speaking English instead of speaking Spanish*
3rd Cause: The Law of April 6th
How will we see our family in the USA?
oh my! Did you hear that darling?
No more immigration from the USA. We are suspending all Empresarios contracts.
4th Cause: Anahuac
I'M NOT PAYING ANYMORE TAXES
The US ambassador suggested that Mexico should sell Texas to the US, which concerned the Mexican government. Manuel de Mier y Teran is sent to do an investigation on Texas. He spots a lot of Anglo activity and recommends that the Mexican government take action, or lose Texas.
8th Cause: The Battle of Gonzales
The Law of April 6th stopped allowing immigration from the USA, upsetting many colonists since they had family there. The Law suspended Empressarios contracts and encouraged European and Mexican families to leave.
9th Cause: Consultaion of 1835
When the taxes collector came around to collect taxes, colonists didn't want to pay. William B. Travis and Patrick Jack got arrested by Burn for interfering with tax collections.
10th Cause: The Convention of 1836
A Mexican officer asked the people of Gonzales to give up their cannon, but they refused. The colonists formed an army of 160 Texans and marched with the cannon and a flag that had "Come and take it" on it.
After the Battle of Gonzales, Texans meet at Washington-on-the-Brazos to decide if Texas would declare its independence. "Declaration in the People of Texas General Convention Assembled" statement was sent out, the colonists pledged their loyalty to Mexico, and they said they would defend the Constitution of 1824. They also opposed Evil Santa.
