  • Yes Mr. President. 
  • I, Santa Anna, order you and your men to take away Texan arms in order to prevent revolt. 
  •                              Battle of Gonzales
  • Surrender the cannon now!
  • Come and Take It!
  • Well then, Come And Take It!
  • The Mexican government welcomed large groups of Anglo-American settlers in order to grow the population and and make them loyal Mexican citizens. The Texans did not do anything the Mexicans wanted, such as getting rid of slaves and speak Mexican, causing the road for conflict. 
  •                              Battle of the Alamo
  • We shall take the Alamo by force!
  • We shall fight to the death to defend the Alamo!
  • The new Mexican dictator, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, overthrew the constitution in 1835. Thinking the Texans would use his rise of power as an excuse to secede, he ordered the Mexican army to disarm Texans. 
  •                     Battle of San Jacinto
  • The Battle of Gonzales was the first battle in the Texas Revolution. Mexican troops were sent to capture a cannon in the town of Gonzales. Eighteen men fought back the Mexicans and managed to save the cannon. 
  •                                   Texas Statehood
  • So we all vote. Texas shall become a slave state in 1845!
  • The Alamo was a fort held by Texan volunteers lead by James Bowie, William Travis, and Davy Crockett along with about 200 men. The Alamo defenders held out for thirteen days before being overwhelmed and killed. All men were killed, with only a few women and children and some servant surviving the battle. Santa Anna allowed them to leave, and they spread the word about the Alamo. 
  • The Battle of San Jacinto was the last battle of the Texas war of Independence.  Lasting only eighteen minutes with three different battle cries, the Texans killed 630 Mexicans while capturing 730, while losing only 9 men dead, 30 injured. Santa Anna was also captured and, in exchange for for his life and the Mexicans to go south of the Rio Grande, Texas became the Lone Star Republic. 
  • Texas became a state in 1845. Before then, Texas was the Lone Star Republic. But, during its existence, and when it joined the United States there was long conflict over the border with Mexico. Americans wanted the land north of the Rio Grande. The Mexicans wanted the border 150 miles north. Sam Houston asked the U.S. government to annex them. It took them years, but Texas was finally and American state.
