In 1836 Mexico wanted to develop the northern region called
Texas. In their drive for development they encouraged American
settlers. Men and women seeking land flooded the region. Soon
their culture, political aspirations and economic systems
clashed with Mexico. A revolution erupted between the settlers
and the Mexican government which finally ended with the defeat
of Santa Ana at Battle of San Jacinto and the
Treaties of Velasco. Texas became independent and was
later annexed by the United States.
