When Mexico gained her independence from Spain in 1821, she extended an invitation to Americans to settle in her northern province of Texas. By 1830 with more than 20,000 Americans there, friction arose when the Mexicans attempted to halt further immigration, free the Negro slaves, and refuse self-government to the province. The Texans rebelled in 1836 and the Mexicans marched in and won a bloody victory at the Alamo.
