Fredonia Revolt

The Revolt occurred in 1826.

The year was 1826, and talk of independence had come up. Hayden and Ben Edwards, collected a group of 20 to 30 Anglo settlers, and sieged on the Republic of Fredonia. The Rebellion had not lasted long: they raised a red and white flag over it proclaiming it free. However it was easily overthrown by the Mexican Army.

However this alarmed Mexico by thinking

Americans wanted Texas as a part of them.

Mexico would then send Manuel Meir y Teran

to investigate.

  • Mexico did route Manuel to the Texas colonies to “do some snooping.”

Manuel Teran s trip to Texas lasted a two-year period.

  • During this time, rumors were confirmed that America did in fact wish Texas to become an American State.
  • Manuel Meir y Teran made it very clear to Mexico that they must act quickly if they intended to keep Texas.
  • This would lead to the Law of April 6, 1830.

Due to Teran’s assessment of Texas, in 1829, Mexico had imposed a law of April 6 this is a law that banned immigration, further settling, and controlled importing more strictly.However this did not prevent people from migrating to Texas by the thousands

Law of April 6 1830…

It is estimated that 30,000 Texans lived there,

Compared to 7.800 Mexican Soldiers.

in 1832, a set of skirmishes

led to the retreat of settlers at

Turtle Bayou.

Here a draft explaining their

actions was written. This was highly

disregarded by the Mexican Government.

BUT REMEMBER THIS! (its important!)

  • Mexican soldiers arrested William Travis, (a lawyer) on charges of returning a slave to his master. Mexico at the time prohibited slavery. The colonist were outraged at this; a mob was formed and they stormed the jail, demanding their release.
  • This was one of two major spurs of the revolution.
  • The second was: settlers were accusing their sponsor Bradburn, of unlawfully taking supplies and not being fair to the citizens.
  • By this point, Texas was exhausted of patience.
  • However, Texas had been consistently apologizing for their minor skirmishes and attacks.
  • Now it was Mexico's turn to get upset.

These Rebellious Protest occurred in 1832.
