The American’s and Tejanos had many complaints because they both were unhappy with what the other was doing and they were doing things they weren’t used to.
Texas Wins Its Independence
After Austin couldn’t make a deal and was arrested there was a rebel and Santa Anna sent 6,000 troops.
Remember The Alamo
Santa Anna brought all his troops to Texas and killed all the Texans at the Alamo.
Should they annex Texas or not?
Sam Houston lured Santa Anna further into Texas to make it more difficult for him to supply his army and maintain battle readiness.
Houston’s troops planned a surprise attack on the Mexican camp forcing Santa Anna to leave, but he was captured and in exchange for his freedom, he told his troops to leave Texas and the Texas War for Independence had been won.
Some people in the United States wanted to annex Texas and others didn’t but after the next president was elected Congress voted to annex Texas.
