Texas Revolution 1836
Transcript of Texas Revolution 1836
It started with the battle of Gonzales on October 2nd, 1835 and ended with the battle of San Jacinto on April 21st, 1836.
The American settlers claimed land in Texas that the Mexicans hadn't yet, therefore they had to adapt to Mexican culture, in which they didn't.
Tensions were already between the Americans and the Mexicans after the Americans settled in Texas, as the Mexicans believed that they were the rightful owners.
The Mexicans didn't like slavery, and the Americans brought slaves.
Texas declared independence in March of 1836, which was what the Americans wanted, and stayed independent until 1845, when they became a part of the United States.
There was a constitution in 1824 that was ridden of because of the Americans, which gave the federal court more power that the Mexicans didn't want.
Texas had economic ties with the US- it was easier for Americans to sell goods at New Orleans rather than travel through the desert to sell it in Mexico.
The American settlers wanted statehood for Texas because it was half of the state of Coahuila y Texas, not all Mexico.
The Americans outnumbered the Mexicans by a long shot-about 4 to 1, which the Mexicans didn't like.
The Americans had a belief called "Manifest Destiny", which stated that anybody that owns any land between the Atlantic and the Pacific should leave for the "rightful owners" (the Americans) to own their rightful land.
Immigrants caused problems within Texas , therefore the Mexicans didn't want them, but the Americans did.
