Texas Revolution (1835-1836)

After Mexican dictator Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna forced new laws that made the government more centralized it provoked secession movements in several Mexican states, including Texas. The Texians (residents of Mexican Texas) began to look forward to independence. The militia force throughout the republic were prepared to defend against the Mexican army led by the Santa Anna. Their first confrontation was the famous battle of Alamo, where the Mexicans have wiped out the 189 defenders of old mission turned into fort.

Later the Mexicans managed to win several smaller battles against the militia, but Texas Army led by General Houston for over a month was using "The Runaway Scrape" tactics, which was basically a military retreat and waiting for Santa Anna to make a mistake. When Santa Anna split his forces Houston confronted him in battle of San Jacinto where Mexicans were smashed (half of the solders were killed other half captured while Texans lost only 9 men). General Santa Anna was captured and in order to save his life he agreed to give the Texas independence.
