  • Texas Statehood
  • The battle lasted 13 days with a loss for the Texans, everyone was killed except for a few women and children. This battle is important since it acted as a symbol of heroic resistance and a rallying cry for the battle for independence.
  • This battle lasted less than 20 minutes with a win for the Texans. One Texan soldier was ordered to break a bridge to keep reinforcements from coming in and others going out. This caused treaties between the Mexican and Texas governments to be signed.
  • It took 10 years for Texas to become a state. It was not allowed in at first because it would've come in as a slave state and powers in congress would've been unbalanced. The addition of Texas broadened the differences in America over slavery and caused the Mexican-American War.
  • Texas can now be a state!
