  • Mier y Teran Report
  • The Law of April 30th, 1830
  • We can come here whenever we want and the land is cheap! No taxes!
  • It's illegal to come to Texas and we have to pay taxes! 
  • Benjamin Edwards arrives in Nagodoches, crowning himself ruler of the Republic of Fredonia. He began rebelling against Mexico and allowing Anglo settlers to live in Texas. After the Mexican army was on it's way to stop the rebellion, Edwards fled and the Republic of Fredonia was nothing more than a representation of the growing tension between America and Mexico.

  • Anglos were moving to Texas because they didn't have to pay taxes, the land was cheaper, and there was more freedom. However, because there were so many Anglos in Mexico, The Mexican Government made The Law of April 30th, 1830, which banned Anglos from coming to Texas. This outraged the Anglos and the tension rose between The US and Mexico.
  • The Turtle Bayou Resolution
  • We Texans are loyal to Mexico!
  • In 1832, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna ran for president. He won by lying to Mexico, saying that he would allow all states, including the Anglos colonies of Texas, to have states' rights. After he became president, he took away all states' rights and made himself Dictator of Mexico, putting the people of Mexico under his complete control.
  • In the winter of 1832, Sam Houston rides into Texas. Being a hero in the past, people looked up to him. Stephen F. Austin had worried that Houston came to start a war with Mexico, but Houston said those were not his intentions, although he did quickly get involved with Mexican politics. Later on, in 1834, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, and their army was ready to rebel against Santa Anna.
  • The Turtle Bayou Resolution was written by the Texans to try to prove loyalty to Mexico. Santa Anna didn't believe it and threw Stephen F. Austin in jail.
