Storyboard Text

  • Mexico Welcomes Immigrants
  • Welcome all newcomers! The church is on the corner ready to greet you, along with a few translators.
  • Eh we don't really need to know how to speak Spanish. 
  • Okay I'm in charge now. All these Texans are dangerous, they need to be relieved of all their arms.
  • 1835 New Dictator of Mexico
  • Yes sir!
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • Come and take it!
  • Retreat men! Retreat!
  • When Mexico was inviting immigrants to their country, they had hopes that it would help them.  They were expecting the immigrants to adapt to their culture, start speaking Spanish and convert to Catholicisms. They had failed the expectation,  
  • Battle of the Alamo 
  • As Santa Anna made himself the dictator, he feared that it could easily be used as and excuse for the Texans to secede. So he immediately ordered all the Texans to be unarmed as soon as possible. 
  • Battle of San Jacinto
  • The battle of Gonzales was a big misleading act. The cannon the Mexicans were sent to receive was spiked, they did not know this. The Texans told them to try and take it, when they shot off the cannon all it did was make a loud noise. Even though the cannon did not harm the Mexican army, they still retreated. 
  • Texas Statehood 
  • We can't let Texas in they will throw off the balance and turn this country upside down.
  • The Alamo was a battle that almost everyone died in, making it a very monumental battle. The small Texan army of 200 were lead by James Bowie and William Travis. 
  • Okay gentlemen, it's now or never.
  • Remember, take no prisoners!
  • Sam Houston and 800 Texans defeated Santa Anna’s army of about 1,500 men at the Battle of San Jacinto, yelling “Remember the Alamo!” Since they just went through a devastating blow at the Alamo they did not want to repeat it. 
  • It took ten years to get the Texan's wish to become a state ratified. If Texas became a state as soon as they applied for statehood, with their large population they would earn many seats in the House of Representative. Since they were a southern state they strongly believed in slavery, it would completely throw off the balance.
