Stephen F. Austin Arrested!

In the Heart of Mexico

Santa Anna Loses it!

Arrest of Stephen F. Austin – Austin travels to Mexico

to meet with Mexican officials and delivers the

resolution written by Texas officials about their

concerns. When he gets there, Santa Anna has

become the leader of Mexico, but so much time has

gone by that Austin sends a letter back to Texas to tell

Texas officials to establish a state government. He gets

a meeting with Santa Anna that agrees to many of the

grievances and returns to Texas. On his return, he is

arrested for treason because of the letter he wrote to

Texas officials earlier. He is not allowed to return to

Texas until summer of 1835.
