THE ANNEXATION OF TEXAS

Issues with mexico

Mexico might go to war with the U.S. because mexico didn't realize the treaty of Velasco. Also, another reason mexico might go to war with U.S. is that mexico wants the border of texas to be the nueces river and the U.S. wants it to be the rio grande.

Slavery

The free black people are afraid that their rights and freedoms might be taken away. There will be an increase of slavery if Texas was annexted. The free black people were able to own land, run a buisness, or even own slaves.

Manifest Destiny

The american's dream of manifest destiny was one step closer for them. Manifest destiny will bring more land to the people. Their dreams of expanding the country will come true if texas went to the U.S. The U.S. will begin to get more states and become a bigger country.
