Storyboard Text

  • Mexico Welcomes Large Numbers of Anglo-American Immigrants
  • Bienvenidos! Please, please, stay awhile! Make yourselves at home!
  • 1835 New Dictator of Mexico
  • I am the new dictator! Do as I say and disarm the Texans ASAP.
  • Battle of Gonzales 
  • Retreat! Retreat!
  • The Mexicans welcomed them hoping they would become loyal Mexican citizens and keep the territory from falling into the hands of the United States. The immigrants adjusted by continuing to speak English, forming their own schools, and had closer trading ties to the U.S. than to Mexico.
  • Battle of the Alamo
  • We're in! Take no prisoners, men! Vámonos!
  •  Santa Anna made himself dictator. The new dictator in 1835 was Mexican President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. He ordered the Mexican military to begin disarming the Texans whenever possible.
  • Battle of San Jacinto 
  • Remember the Alamo!
  • The town of Gonzales received a cannon from the Mexican government. The Mexicans were sent to retrieve the cannon because they said they only loaned it to the Americans. The Mexicans arrived and the Americans fired the cannon. The Mexicans, not knowing it was spiked, retreated to San Antonio.
  • Texas Statehood
  • We don't want another slave state! It would mess everything up!
  • A group of Texan volunteers led by George Collinsworth & Benjamin Milan occupied the Alamo in December 1835. The Texans were able to hold of Mexicans for 13 days, until they got in through a breach in the outer wall of the courtyard. Santa Anna ordered his men to take no prisoners, and only a small group of Texans were spared.
  • This battle lasted less than 20 minutes. The Mexicans had occupied the Alamo. Sam Houston and around 800 Texans defeated Santa Anna's Mexican forces of 1,500 men. The Texans shouted, "Remember the Alamo," as they attacked.
  • Texas received its statehood in 1845. Texas wanted to enter the Union as a slave state, but the Northern states didn't want to add a slave state because the states would be uneven.
  • We will enter as a slave state, whether you like it or not.
