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.

  • 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

  • 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.
