Educators, join us at the Alamo for The Start of the Texas Revolution, offered both onsite and virtual. Earn CPE credits in this Professional Development workshop designed for the Texas History classroom.
The focus of this lesson is on the Goliad Campaign of 1835, a series of operations initiated by Mexican president Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna to quell insurrection in Texas. The impact of the empresario movement on Texas and the significant people who emerge in Texas in 1835 sets the stage for what occurs in Texas as the Mexican government shifts from a federal to a centralist bent. Some of these events were triggered by the survey, Mier y Teran report, and the following Law of April 1830. Retaliations occurred throughout Mexico with the discarding of the Constitution of 1824 and the Militia Reduction Act, among other things. The consequential actions were the skirmish at Gonzales, the Goliad Campaign, and the Consultation in November.
