In what year did the Texas Revolution start?
The Texas Revolution was fought from 1835 to 1836 between the Republic of Texas and Mexico. The battle was a result of a decade of political and cultural clashes between the Mexican government and the people of Texas. The victory of the Texas Revolution led to the establishment of the independent Republic of Texas.
The Alamo: a former mission in San Antonio, Texas, where in 1836 a group of Texans and Tejanos (Texans of Mexican descent) held out for 13 days against a much larger Mexican army. The battle at the Alamo was a critical event in the Texas Revolution, inspiring Texans to fight for their independence. The Battle of San Jacinto: the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution. On April 21, 1836, Texan forces, led by future president Sam Houston, defeated Mexican forces under the command of General Antonio López de Santa Anna, who was captured the following day. The Texas Declaration of Independence: a document declaring the independence of the Republic of Texas from Mexico. It was adopted at a convention in Washington-on-the-Brazos on March 2, 1836. The declaration was signed by 59 delegates representing settlements throughout Texas.
