Have you ever done something solely to build or save your pride In the Texas Revolution a strong and proud general named Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna tightened control over Texas in order to repopulate Texas with Mexicans since the dominating race had become non- Mexicans This war started out as small isolated clashes but eventually broke out into full-scale rebellion In order to end these frequent revolts Santa Anna led his several thousand Mexican troops into the rebel-controlled San Antonio in February of 1836 The 187 Texas rebels fought off Santa Annas repeated attacks but on March 6 the Mexican troops finally overran the fort Santa Annas troops who suffered over 1500 casualties paid a large price for their victory Not to mention that 6 weeks later the Texas army came back killing over 630 Mexicans within 20 minutes and taking their only general Santa Anna as prisoner Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna strongly believed that the percentage of Mexicans should be the dominant population When he found out that the non-Mexicans highly out numbered the Mexicans he rushed to tighten the control and close the borders over Texas He tried to do everything in his power to stop the Texans from earning their independence and becoming a non-Mexican dominated state The Texans strongly desired their independence and freedom from the Mexicans This left them only one choice to be persistent They didnt let one loss pull them down they came back for a surprise attack on the Mexicans leading them to their both their freedom and independence I believe that General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna started the Texas Revolution solely to gain power over the Texans and build his own pride To take thousands of Mexican troops into a war and have more than 1850 casualties over a war that could have been stopped or resolved at the beginning when the first isolated attacks began This shows me
