Including, but not limited to:
Fredonian Rebellion – in 1826, in Nacogdoches, a group of Texans formed the Fredonian Republic led by the Edwards Brothers, claimed the area was no longer under Mexican control. Stephen F. Austin sided with the Mexican government and marched to Nacogdoches to help stop the rebellion. It ended quickly.
Mier y Terán – in 1828, the Mexican government sent Gen. Manuel Mier y Terán to investigate the conditions in northern Texas. He found that the Anglo-Americans outnumbered Mexicans 10 to 1. The report resulted in the Law of April 6.
Law of April 6, 1830 – in 1828, the Mexican government sent Mier y Terán to report on the new immigrants moving into Texas. He reported concerns about the Anglo Americans. This resulted in the Law of April 6 which outlawed immigration from the U.S. to Texas and canceled all empresarial grants that had not been fulfilled. It did encourage European immigration. Slaves could no longer be brought into Mexico to work, and they placed customs duties on all goods entering Texas from the U.S.
Turtle Bayou Resolutions – Anahuac settlers gathered at Turtle Bayou because of the disturbance at Anahuac. John Austin was sent to retrieve a cannon to be brought back from Brazoria and drafted resolutions that stated that they pledged their continued loyalty to Mexico under the Constitution of 1824. Santa Anna seemed to support the Constitution of 1824. This event resulted in Colonel Jose de las Piedras ordering the release of William B. Travis and Patrick Jack from jail. Bradburn was dismissed from his command.
Arrest of Stephen F. Austin – Austin travels to Mexico to meet with Mexican officials and delivers the resolution written by Texas officials about their concerns. When he gets there, Santa Anna has become the leader of Mexico, but so much time has gone by that Austin sends a letter back to Texas to tell Texas officials to establish a state government. He gets a meeting with Santa Anna that agrees to many of the grievances and returns to Texas. On his return, he is arrested for treason because of the letter he wrote to Texas officials earlier. He is not allowed to return to Texas until summer of 1835. Fredonian Rebellion Mier y Terán Law of April 6, 1830 Turtle Bayou Resolutions Arrestof Stephen F.

Commandancy of the The Alamo
Bejar, Feby. 24th. 1836
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World—
Fellow Citizens & compatriots—

I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna — I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man — The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch — The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country — Victory or Death.
William Barrett Travis.

Lt. Col. comdt.
P. S. The Lord is on our side — When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn — We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves.
