Cities and Trade BY:Nathan

4. Those big settlements needed a better constructed government. 5. The government was the ayuntamiento, or city council. 6. San Antonio in 1820 was home to 2,000

7. Since many businesses didn't have money, they would conduct barter, or trade. 8. Some other businesses would work with sawmills which was a mill that would cut wood into little pieces. 9. Obstacles didn't stop 1830s Texas from producing 500k of exports. 10. In return for producing the exports, Texas would receive imports, or items bought from another region.
