  • The Texans Rebel
  • let me out
  • The Alamo
  • Victory or Death
  • We need reinforcements
  • Stephen Austin asks the Mexican government to make Texas a state. The government denied his request and put him in jail. They put him in jail because they were afraid people would rebel.
  • The battle
  • In February 1836, a large part of Santa Anna's army reached San Antonio, Texas. The Texans had taken over the Alamo. When the general wanted the Texans to surrender, William Travis a general answered back with a cannon shot.
  • Texas Wins It's Independance
  • Suprise
  • While the fight was going on general William Travis sent messengers in other towns in Texas to plead for reinforcements. He said he was not leaving the Alamo proclaiming victory or death. But, no reinforcements ever came.
  • To Annex Texas or Not
  • For 12 days, Mexicans pounded the Alamo with cannonballs. On March 5th, Santa Anna sent his troops into the fort. The Texans tried to fight off the troops but after 90 minutes the battle was done. Santa Anna ordered any Texans that survived the battle to be executed. The Texans were outraged he ordered every man from the Alamo to be killed.
  • You all are going to die.
  • Nooo!
  • Sam Houston, the commander said that by luring Santa Anna deeper into Texas it would hopefully make it harder for the general to supply his army and maintain their readiness. Later Santa Anna caught up with Houston. Expecting the Texans to attack at dawn no attack ever came and his troops stayed up all night. Once the Mexicans started to relax the Texans staged a surprise attack.
  • Now that Texas was independent the US was debating whether or not they wanted to annex Texas. Texas was independent for ten years. The South was eager to add another slavery state while the North that opposed slavery wanted to keep Texas out. Others feared adding Texas would lead to war with Mexico. Finally after ten years Texas was added to the US as the 28th state.
