The Texas Revolution A PowerPoint Presentation by Ms. Kohli Spanish Texas
  • The Spanish land called Tejas was rich and desirable, as it had forests, rich soil, and great grassy plains.
  • Tejanos are people of Spanish heritage who consider Texas their home.
  • The Spanish government wanted to attract more settlers to move to Texas to help defend against Native Americans and Americans who illegally sneaked into Texas.
  • Mexican Independence Changes Texas
  • Stephen Austin created a colony in Texas that attracted 297 families.
  • Tensions between American settlers and Tejanos increased because the Americans resented following Mexican laws.
  • To resolve tensions, the Mexican government:  stopped American immigration  levied taxes  sent troops to Texas
  • Texans Revolt Against Mexico
  • In 1833, Austin set off for Mexico City with a petition listing all the reforms supported by both Americans and Tejanos.
  • In Mexico City, the Mexican president, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna learned of a letter Austin had written that threatened a rebellion if Santa Anna didn’t approve of his petition.
  • The Battle of Alamo was a result of tensions between the Texans and Mexicans. In 1836, the Texans defended a church called the Alamo against the Mexican army; all but five Texans were killed.
  • Men of the Alamo Sam Houston Juan Seguin William Travis Davy Crockett Victory at San Jacinto

  • In just 18 minutes, the Texans killed more than half of the Mexican army.
  • Santa Anna was forced to sign a treaty giving Texas its freedom.
  • With the Battle of San Jacinto, Texas was no independent.
  • Lone Star Republic
  • In September 1836, Texans raised a flag with a single star.
  • Sam Houston was elected president of the Lone Star Republic.
