Colonel William Travis - Travis was stalling the Mexicans so the Texans can get more people to fight the Alamo

Sam Houston- Sam created a town named Houston and made it a capital which is also very popular now

Mexico had a unprotected border so Mexico was all ways worried about Americans coming and attacking them at any time, at any moment until a Mexican priest led a rebellion of about 80,000 Indians and mestizos and the rebellion grew more, and so then empresarios came and then American settlers flocked the region so in exchange for free land and Americans settlers have to follow the laws of Mexico

In October 1835 the Mexican army tried to remove a cannon from the Texans and the flag said "come and take it" and the Texans lost though and the Texas Independence war had begun.
