Fredonian Rebellion On December 16, 1826, Hayden Edwards declared his colony independent of Mexico. He took over the Old Stone Fort at Nacogdoches. Mexico sent soldiers to restore order and the Fredonians gave up before the Mexican military force arrived.
The Mier y Taren Report In 1928 the Mexican government sent General Mier y Teran to Texas to inspect the condition of the colonies. He found that the Anglo settlers outnumbered Mexicans 10 to 1. He also reported that many Anglos were doing unauthorized business with the United States.
The Law of April 6, 1830 This decree outlawed immigration from the United States to Texas and canceled all empresarial grants that had not been fulfilled. It also placed heavy custom duties on goods imported from the United States. President Bustamante
Trouble at Anahuac In May of 1832 Mexican Col. Bradburn places William Travis and Patrick Jack in jail. Anglo settlers protested and demanded the immediate release of both Travis and Jack. Bradburn promised to release them but broke his promise. Settlers sent John Austin to Brazoria to retrieve a cannon to aid in their release. Anahuac
Turtle Bayou Resolutions While the settlers waited for Austin to return from Brazoria they drew up a set of resolutions which explained their actions. The resolutions stated that the settlers were loyal Mexicans opposing the actions of President Bustamante and expressed their support of Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
The Battle of Velasco Austin had to fight his way back to Anahuac. After loading the cannon on a boat he and his men sailed down the Brazos to the Gulf of Mexico. When they reached Velasco Col Ugartecha refused to let them pass. Fighting broke out. There were casualties on both sides.
Conventions of 1832 & 1833 In October of 1832 delegates met in San Felipe de Austin to decide what they should do. They decided to petition Mexico for Texas to become a independent Mexican state and ask Mexico to repeal the Law of April 6, 1830. Stephen F. Austin was sent to San Antonio with the request. In April of 1833 the group met again.
Austin’s Arrest In December of 1833 Stephen F Austin was arrested and placed in a Mexico City jail. Mr. Austin had written a letter that had been viewed by the Mexican government as treasonous.
Battle of Gonzales On October 2, 1835, Texas settlers at Gonzales refuse to return a cannon to the Mexican army. The confrontation results in the Mexicans retreating back to San Antonio with the Texans in pursuit.
The Consultation On November 4, 1835 delegates met in San Felipe de Austin to discuss what they should do. They passed the Declaration of the People calling for the ousting of Santa Anna and a return to the Constitution of 1824.
The Attack on San Antonio On December 5, 1835 Ben Milam led about 500 Texas volunteers into San Antonio to defeat Gen Cos and the Mexican forces. Gen Cos agreed to retreat south of the Rio Grande and not to return to Texas. “Who will go with old Ben Milam to San Antonio?”
