The mexican government wanted the cannon back, but the anglos didn't want to give it away, so there was a battle for the cannon which made the famous Come and Take It flag.
THE BATTLE OF SAN JANITCO
The Texians made a consultation to bring back the cannon whenever the Mexican government wanted it. But a year later, the person who made the consultation died and the wife was the mayor, and the Mexican govt. needed it and then there was a battle.
You want blood, but I want Texas
Mexico wanted San Antonio back, so they came and fought the Texians to earn it back. Turns out they won and killed two legends, Jim Bowie and Davy(David) Crockett. But the Texians defended the Alamo with their life.
Sam Houston was running away from the Mexican army coming his way. But the civilians told Sam that the Mexican army had already caught up by being 2 miles away. So the Texians battle while the Mexican army, since they had no weapons, and got the revenge for the Alamo.
Mexican army was defeated and Santa Anna was still alive. The Texians wanted to kill Santa Anna, But Sam Houston wanted Texas. So they made a consultation and Santa Anna signed it saying surrender and go back to Mexico and leave us alone and we won't hurt you. Also saying that Texas now belongs to the Texians.
After Santa Anna signed the consultation Texas had won its independence. WOOHOO!!!
