The Texas Revolution

1835

October 2nd Battle of Gonzales

George Childress, head of the commitee formed to write the Texas Declaration of Independence, wrote it after the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

For 13 days straight the Mexican army shot cannonballs at the walls of the Alamo, causing the Texans to rebuild them at night. This wore the Texans out.

The Battle did not last long, for it was only 90 minutes. 189 Alamo defenders were killed while only about one-third of the Mexican army was killed. The Texans were defeated. This battle showed just how far Santa Anna would go to stop the Texans from going against him.

Andrew Ponton Refuses to give General Cos a six-pound cannon without written orders, and has the Texans bury it. The word got around that the Mexican soldiers were coming back to take it, so the Texans dug it up. Once the Mexican soldiers returned with written orders, the Texans fired the canon and the Mexican troops retreated.

JuneTreaties of Velasco

There were two treaties, a public one and a secret one. After Santa Anna signed them, he was promised to be released, but wasn't released for quite a while for his own safety.

This short battle showed Mexico that the Texans were starting to become more rebellious against them and that they might have to start taking farther measures to keep the Texans in line. It also made more Texans eager to voluteer in the fight for independence.

The Consultation, a group of Texan delegates who decide what actions Texas takes, adopted the Texas Declaration of Independence with no one voting against it.

The Battle at San Jacinto was unexpected, for the Mexican army, at least. Santa Anna and his men were taking a siesta, unprepared for the battle. The Mexican army panicked and confused themselves, making them easy to defeat.

Even after Urrea assures the captives that they will not be executed, Santa Anna gives Urrea orders to have all of Fannin's troops shot. This fuels the fire of the Texans' thirst for independence.

By the 13th day the Texas were absolutely exhausted and Santa Anna's army had them surrounded. Early the next morning, the battle begun.

Santa Anna wanted revenge for their embarrassing losses at the Battle of Gonzales and The Battle of San Antonio. He also felt as though he needed to despartely restrengthen Mexico's grip on Texas and rid it of any rebels.

On the second day of the Battle of Coleto Creek, Fannin and his troops surrendered to Urrea and his men. Urrea then took the Texas soldiers captive.

Ad Intern president David Burnet negotiates with Santa Anna. After much discussion, The Treaties of Velasco were formed.
