Texas had a difficult decision to make. We were deciding if we should be annexed. There were different opinions about whether to annex Texas or not.
It'll be fine! The U.S. will help us pay our debt, give us valuable currency, and more!
Texas shouldn't join the U.S.! It won't help us at all! The U.S. will only take our land.
After a vote, it was decided. We would join the U.S.. It had been more than 4000 to 267.
I must tell my family the good news!! We are joining the United States!! We are getting annexed by the U.S.!!
U.S. President James K. Polk tried to make sure the Rio Grande was Texas's border and acquire California, bout Mexico refused. Polk sent military troops to the Rio Grande. We knew even before we annexed Texas that it would cause war with Mexico.
I will send military troops to the Rio Grande.
We went into war with Mexico. It lasted 1 year, 9 months, 1 week, and 1 day.
