  • The Fredonian Rebellion Outcome

    The Fredonian Rebellion Outcome
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    Helping Texas rebel against the Mexican government, the two Edwards Brothers Benjamin and Haden rebelled against Mexican for their lands grants and they didnt trust them very much. This rebellion was held in Nacodoches, Texas. They demanded at least 800 families to come to Texas.

    The two brothers, Benjamin and Haden Edwards, rebelled against the Mexican government when they couldnt get land grants they wanted. It was in Nacodoches, Texas. I think that they shouldn't have rebelled just because of the empresario grants, thats a stupid thing to do! But we should have more grants I think.

    Traded between Texas and Mexico should be increased in effort to discouraged trade with the U.S. More soldiers needed to be sent to Texas to increase Mexico's control over the region. And they wanted to encourage the settling of Europeans and Mexicans.

    I think that Mexico's control should have been decreased because the Mexican Government is not in trust enough to run the whole region! And they can't just barge into our land and think its okay! I may be a Mexican Texan but I still respect what is right!
  • Law of April 6th, 1830

    Law of April 6th, 1830
    http://www.daysandstewart.com/pdf/PreRevolution.pdf</a>
    Banned all imigration from U.S into Texas. It was illigal to bring more slaves into Texas. Cancelled all uncompleted empresario contracts. Placed all costum Duty(tax) on all U.S imports

    I think it was unfair that no more slaves were allowed in Texas. But we needed the slaves because we had important things to do. And it is unfair not to give the land grants that we could pay for. And outlawed out Texas immigration! Even Custom Duties are being fufilled for goods!
  • Turtle Bayou Resolutions

    Turtle Bayou Resolutions
    http://www.daysandstewart.com/pdf/PreRevolution.pdf</a>
    They fought becuase they were fighting over the Turtle Bayou and James Taylor White was almost becoming apart of the fight because they were passing through by his ranchhouse but he refused to fight and attack against Anahuac
  • The Turtle Bayou Resolutions

    The Turtle Bayou Resolutions
    http://www.daysandstewart.com/pdf/PreRevolution.pdf</a>
    Colonists were loyal to Mexican citizens., they were defending their rights of Constitution of 1834., and they declared their report for Santa Anna.
  • Conflict of Anahuac

    Conflict of Anahuac
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    It was a protest of incoming goods from the port in Anahuac, William B. Travis and Patrick Jack were arrested. After a brief skirmish between Mexican soldiers and settlers, Travis and Jack were free to go.

    They shouldnt have been arrested because all we wanted were runaway slaves which isn't so bad. Because if they are runaway then they aren't exactly yours in the first place. Even though they were the Mexican's first.
  • Santa Anna Takes Over Mexican Government

    Santa Anna Takes Over Mexican Government
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    I think he should not have taken over Mexico because he lied to his government and he is not a good leader to his country. And the Mexican government wouldn't want to be ruled by him!
  • Santa Anna takes over Mexican Government

    Santa Anna regrouped his Mexican troops and rebelled against Texas. Santa Anna sent the other leaders southward. In Nacodoches because they had lost the Alamo and they wanted to rebell and get back at them, plus they were running out of food. And they had no choice but to go to war.
  • Stephen F. Austin is arrested

    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    Austin was arrested at Saltillo in January, under suspicion of trying to incite insurrection in Texas, and taken back to Mexico City. No charges were pressed against him but he was thrown in jail with no trial, it was preferred unfair of the judgement. He just let his anger out a little and he didnt really mean any of the words he threw and he didnt do anything wrong exactly.
  • Stephen F. Austin Arrested

    I think it was unfair to arrest Austin because he did not mean what he said, and he didnt even get a trial to defend himself. And he really didnt do anything wrong to his government and he didnt do anything to Mexico. I mean my dad was in the Mexican Congress so they at least could have gave him a trial before you just throw him in jail!

    Stephen F. Austin followed his fathers orders by stealing and bringing 300 colonist including him, with him to San Antonio, Texas. He also arranged options of getting acres for his family. Up at $12.50 per acre.

    I think he shouldn't have disobeyed the empresario grants but it was still good to have more people in Texas to increase the population and to help the country out a little bit.
  • Battle of Gonzales

    Battle of Gonzales
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    One of the first battles of Texas in Nacodoches, Texas. The basic battle of the cannon. The Mexican Government demanded their cannon back, the cannon was used to protect from the Native American Attacks. The saying "Come and Take it!" was used in this battle.

    Them wimps retreated when only a few soldiers died. We would of fought to the end with our bravery! No one could have stopped us with our cannon yielding everyone back.
  • Battle of San Antonio

    Battle of San Antonio
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The victory won by the vastly outnumbered men served to impede the progress of Santa Ana's Mexican Army, giving the Texians more time to prepare for the perilous days ahead.The Battle of the Alamo occurred the following March, the small group of courageous defenders being massacred by hordes of Mexicans. In April 1836, galvanized by the Mexican brutality at the Alamo.

    Before we won, the Texans. Santa Ana over powered us, but we came back with a big suprise and came back and over powered them and chased them away... we had finally won the Battle of San Antonio.
  • Battle of the Alamo

    Battle of the Alamo
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The battle was conspicuous for the large number of illustrious personalities among its combatants. These included Tennessee congressman David Crockett, entrepreneur-adventurer James Bowie, and Mexican president Antonio López de Santa Anna. Although not nationally famous at the time, William Barret Travis achieved lasting distinction as commander at the Alamo.

    I'm very glad that we, the Texans won the battle of the Alamo. We deserved to win anyway, because they tried to invade our territory in San Antonio and that wasn't fair to us. The Mexicans got a piece of us and they deserved it! Santa Ana should be kicked from our land and head back to Mexico!

    Santa Ana can't just come into our country and just try and take over everything one by one, they have their own country! Him and his governement need to back off and worry about their own country!
  • Convention of 1836 (Texas Declaration of Independence)

    Convention of 1836 (Texas Declaration of Independence)
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The Convention of 1836 was the meeting of elected delegates in Washington-on-the-Brazos, Texas in March 1836. The Texas Revolution had begun five months previously, and the interim government, known as the Consultation, had wavered over whether to declare independence from Mexico or pledge to uphold the repudiated Mexican Constitution of 1824. Unlike those of previous Texas councils.
  • Battle of San Jacinto

    Battle of San Jacinto
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The battle of San Jacinto was the concluding military event of the Texas Revolution. On March 13, 1836, the revolutionary army at Gonzales began to retreat eastward. It crossed the Colorado River on March 17 and camped near present Columbus on March 20, recruiting and reinforcements having increased its size to 1,200 men. Sam Houston's scouts reported Mexican troops west of the Colorado to number 1,325.

    We deserve our freedom from Mexico since they were chasing and following us travling near present Columbus. I have been messaging and I could have been killed!
  • Runaway Scrape

    Runaway Scrape
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The term Runaway Scrape was the name Texans applied to the flight from their homes when Antonio López de Santa Anna began his attempted conquest of Texas in February 1836. The first communities to be affected were those in the south central portions of Texas around San Patricio, Refugio, and San Antonio.

    I think they shouldn't have invaded us like that. They killed poor inacent people and some of our soldiers, they deserve to be destroyed!
  • Treaties of Velasco

    Treaties of Velasco
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    Two treaties were signed by ad interim president David G. Burnet and Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna at Velasco on May 14, 1836, after defeat of the Mexican forces at the battle of San Jacinto. The public treaty was to be published immediately, and the secret agreement was to be carried into execution when the public treaty had been fulfilled. The public treaty, with ten articles, provided that hostilities would cease.
  • Treaties of Velesco

    Treaties of Velesco
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The treaty was fair because they were not treating us well with our government. Santa Ana should have been sent to Mexico! And he did, so he should not ever bother our government or our country again!! He has already done enough damage and he should pay for it!
  • Massacre at Goliad

    Massacre at Goliad
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    The Goliad Massacre, the tragic termination of the Goliad Campaign of 1836, is of all the episodes of the Texas Revolution the most infamous. Though not as salient as the battle of the Alamo, the massacre immeasurably garnered support for the cause against Mexico both within Texas and in the United States, thus contributing greatly to the Texan victory at the battle of San Jacinto and sustaining the independence of the Republic of Texas.
  • Massacre at Goliad

    Massacre at Goliad
    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online</a>
    Like the defenders at the Battle of the Alamo who died only three weeks earlier, the men of Goliad served as martyrs for the remaining forces in Houston's army. Three weeks later, the Texans sought their revenge. Inspired by cries of "Remember Goliad" and "Remember the Alamo," the outnumbered Texans won one of history's most decisive victories at the Battle of San Jacinto. I think we did a great job taking power over the Massacre of Goliad.
