  • No!! We don't want to leave Spain in charge of Texas.
  • US: Americans leaving Spain in charge of Texas, gains us "tens of Floridas."
  • Beforehand- James Monroe sent Andrew Jackson to Georgia to end the raids. Jackson was told that he could chase the indians to Florida but not allowed to invade the Spanish Colony which is now day Florida.
  • Jackson didn't listen and took 1,700 troops to go and invade Spanish territory. The next few week the troops captured Spanish military and replaced the Spanish governor with an American one. IN conclusion the Americans ended up winning and owned Florida.
