At the Battle of the Alamo, 178 of the 183 Americans were killed by Santa Anna’s army of 1,800 men.

Sam Houston and his men advanced upon the Mexican Army at San Jacinto screaming “Remember the Alamo” killing half of Santa Anna’s army, forcing them to surrender.


Manifest Destiny suggest that expansion was not only good but bound to happen, even if it meant pushing Mexicans and Native Americans out of the way.


In 1848, the war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Mexico recognized that Texas was part of the United States, and the Rio Grande was the border between the nations.


Mexico also ceded, or gave up, a vast region known as the Mexican Cession, but the United States agreed to pay $15 million for the land.
