Beyond the Alamo

This chapter discusses the time after General Antonio López de Santa Anna's loss at San Jacinto, when he relinquished control of Texas to the Texan secessionists. For Anglo-Texans, the end of the war ushered in the Republic of Texas era. For Tejanos, though, it brought only more uncertainty regarding their future. Their political and ethnic relation to Mexico stood at the center of that uncertainty. Mexicans continued to call for the reconquest of Texas, leading to two brief invasions of Bexar in 1842. During the second invasion, Mexican forces required Anglo-Texan inhabitants to sign an oath promising to “recommend to all Americans, who may come here after our departure, to treat the Mexican population residing in this place with lenience and kindness.”
