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.
