Transcript of TEXAS REVOLUTION PBL

Mier Y Teran Report
The Comisión de Límites (Boundary Commission) left Mexico City on November 10, 1827, and reached San Antonio on March 1, 1828
After the completion of his reports, Mier y Terán was ordered to Tampico to help repulse a Spanish invasion in August 1829. Mier y Teran made 14 recommendations directed toward stimulating counter colonization of Texas by Mexicans and Europeans.
Conclusion
The Law Of April 6,1830

When The Fredonian Rebellion failed, the government of Mexico asked General Meir y Teran to investigate the General Colonization Law in Texas. After his report, the Mexican government issued The Law of April 6, 1830.
The effects of the new law was that they did not allow new slaves to come to Texas, stop immigration from Mexico to U.S., and all empresario contracts were finalized, even when it wasn’t finished, and lastly, it placed a custom duty tax on goods coming from the U.S. into Texas.
The Fredonian Rebellion

Haden Edwards was born on August 12, 1771 in stafford county, virginia. In 1780 their family moved to Bourbon county, kentucky (At that time this city was part of virginia). On that same year Ben Edwards was born. When they arrived at Bourbon County John Edwards, their father John Edwards, acquired 23,000 acres of land, worked for the statehood, and was elected to the United States Senate. Haden Edwards was educated for the law like his father, but he was more interested in land speculation. In 1820 he married Susanna Beall of Maryland, and they moved to the area of Jackson, Mississippi, where they eventually had 13 children. In 1823 Haden traveled to Mexico city, where he joined Stephen F. Austin, Robert Leftwich, and others in a three-year attempt to persuade various Mexican governments to Authorize American settlements in Texas.
TEXAS REVOLUTION PBL
The Turtle Bayou Resolutions

While waiting for John Austin’s return with the cannon, the colonists created the Turtle Bayou Resolutions. In the statement they declared their loyalty to Mexico. They denied all rebelling against Mexican authority, they insisted that they supported Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Santa Anna supported the Constitution of 1824 unlike the centralist Anastasio Bustamante who ignored the Texan favoured constitution.
Could the Texas Revolution have been avoided? There were a lot of causes of the Texas Revolution including racism, cultural differences, governmental differences, slavery, etc. Following the Texas Revolution was the Mexican - American War, so the Texas Revolution could not have been avoided. Some battles within it could have been avoided.


HADEN and Ben Edwards
Introduction
The Texas Revolution also known as the Texas war of independence was a conflict between the Government of Mexico and Texas colonists which began on October 2, 1835. It started with the battle of Gonzales in 1835 and ended a year later April 21, 1836 on the battle of San Jacinto. The revolution occured because In 1830 the President of Mexico implemented several changes in the law to discourage immigration from the United States into Texas because the US settlers were outnumbering the Mexican born settlers. Mexico encouraged immigration into Texas in the early 1820’s in order to help settle the Texas Mexican State. Many US settlers made the journey including the original Stephen F. Austin group.
In 1830 the President of Mexico implemented several changes in the law to discourage immigration from the United States into Texas because the US settlers were outnumbering the Mexican born settlers.
Some of the measures imposed on the settlers were:
1.Settlers were denied freedom of religion and were required to join the Catholic Church.
2.Further immigration from the United States was prohibited
3.Property taxes were imposed.
4.Tariffs were imposed on goods from the US.
4.A prohibition against slavery was imposed.
5.Mexican criminals were given the choice of prison or serving in the Mexican army in Texas.
6.Texas was combined with the Mexican State of Coahuila and the capital moved 500 miles south.
7.When Stephen F. Austin went to Mexico to protest and petition for changes he was jailed.

The
Rebellion
The fredonian rebellion was a dispute between the Mexican government and the Edwards Brothers. On April 4, 1825 Haden Edwards received a grant of land which entitled him to settle as much as 800 families in a broad area around Nacogdoches in eastern Texas. Haden Edwards arrived to his land on September 25, 1825, when he got there Haden Edwards tried to oust the settlers who could not show clear title, and the resultant trouble led the Mexican government to revoke his charter. The Edwards had suffered more than he profited from helping Stephen F. Austin earlier with his finances. During this time Stephen F. Austin had given him advice to take up arms, but the Edwards went against this. Edwards had expected American support and when that did not work, he attempted an alliance with the Native Americans, agreeing to divide Texas with them; but he could gather only a few men for the army of his hastily constituted state of Fredonia, and the whole scheme fell apart at the approach of a Mexican force.
The Resolutions
Aida, Arnold, Shivani, , Matthew, and Angel
Stephen F. Austin arrested
After the fredonian rebellion, Mexico was quite uneasy about any Anglo empresarios. They then proceeded to arrest Stephen Austin, suspended every empresario contract, and then deny immigration from the US. the reason they did arrest him is because they thought he was linked with a nonexistent US plot to take Texas. after all that residents decided they didn't really like Mexico. Stepen being arrested essentially sparked the revolution.

Conclusion
Could the Texas Revolution have been avoided? There were a lot of causes of the Texas Revolution including racism, cultural differences, governmental differences, slavery, etc. Following the Texas Revolution was the Mexican - American War, so the Texas Revolution could not have been avoided. Some battles within it could have been avoided.
