Storyboard Text

  • The main cause of the Texas Revolution was that many of the texans mainly the Anglo and Mexicans didn't accept the new laws the government made. Another reason was because slavery was against the Mexican law but the Texans brought them anyways. Many people wanted to break away from Mexico and Santa Anna's rule. They wanted their own independence and freedom.
  • The Fredonian Rebellion was a brief and unsuccessful uprising which, nevertheless, had a profound influence on Texas history. The primary mover behind the rebellion was Haden Edwards, the empresario of Nacogdoches from 1825 to 1826. They declared independence from Mexican Texas.
  • The Mier Y Teran Report was sent because of the Fredonian Rebellion, Mexico wanted to see how big the American threat was in Texas. He was sent on an inspection tour of Texas. He reported Mexican influence decreased Anglo-Americans outnumbered Mexicans 10 to 1. Unless Mexico tightened their control, Texas could revolt. The Mexicans point of view was they needed control of Texas with new laws. The Texans point of view was that they thought it was wrong to punish all of Texas when only Edwards rebelled. This took place in 1827.
  • The Law of April6, 1830 was issued because of the Teran Report to counter concerns that Mexican Texas, part of the border state of Cahuila Y Texas was in danger of being annexed by the United States. It was said to be the same type of sitmulus to the Texas Revolution that the Stamp Act was initiated by Lucas Alamán y Escalada, Mexican minister of the foreign relations. The law came as a result of the warning and communication of Manuel de Mier y Terán who made fourteen recommendations. The law authorized a loan to finance the cost of transporting colonists to Texas.
