Take this Texas Revolution quiz and probably you will discover something new about one of the greatest revolutions in history.
The Texas Revolution represents a crucial and complex event in the history of both modern-day State of Texas, and not last for the history of the American nation.
The Texas Revolution was the third successful military uprising on the North American Continent, after the American Revolution and the Mexican War for Independence.
The revolution officially began with a minor skirmish on October 2, 1835, in what we all know today as the Battle of Gonzales.
The Mexican forces, sent to reclaim a cannon defended by Texian militias were surprisingly routed.
Off course, the Mexicans couldn’t let this event go unpunished, and the Texans know that a military expedition against them was underway.
Mexico’s new president, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, in fact, a dictator, was determined to crush the Texan revolutionaries at all costs.
Initially, it appeared that the Mexicans had the upper hand and that the struggle of the newly formed Texan militias will be crushed without mercy.
Two major military events contributed decisively to the Texan cause: The siege of the Alamo and the Goliad Massacre.
These 2 military events galvanized the Texan Revolutionary and decisively boosted their morale.
Determined to avenge their fallen comrades, the Texan army quickly rallied and were prepared for one final battle against Santa Anna.
At the decisive Battle of San Jacinto, the main Texan Army battle cries were: “Remember the Alamo” and “Remember Goliad”.
The Mexican army though well equipped and outnumbering the revolutionaries, made the fatal mistake of underestimating the power given by the symbolic battles of Alamo and Goliad.
By quickly gaining its independence and then accepting to enter the Union, the newly born State of Texas dramatically changed the balance of power in North America.
First, it dealt an important and severe blow to the Mexican nation, from which they will never recover. In a matter of just 7 months, Mexico lost a region with a surface of nearly 700.000 km2(270.272 square miles). The same region would prove to be later also very rich in natural resources.
Though defeated the Mexicans seem to have not fully accepted their defeat entirely, no wonder that after Texas was admitted into the Union, the spark that will light the powder keg for a new war automatically started.
Anyway, the Texas Revolution represents both the start of a long era of decline for Mexico and a new beginning for the USA.
We hope that this Texas Revolution quiz was both interesting and informative for you.
