Archives War!

The panic in Austin.

Prelude and Conflict...

Pioneers set out from Austin for Santa Fe, for they were on a mission.Then the travelers began to get discouraged and they still hadn't reached Santa Fe plus they were running out of food fast. After the Santa Fe expedition Indians attacked as the Texans passed through their land. Then the Mexican force easily caught them and at least 60 Texans died, and the expedition costed a great sum of money. Everything happened in a blink of an eye form the Santa Fe expedition to when the Texas Navy was payed $8,000 a month by the rebels who were fighting the Mexican Government. Then came the Archives War!

Aftermath...

The Texas house of Representatives formed a committee to look into the attempt of transferring the Archives from Austin to Houston without approval from Congress. The senate voted that the Archives should be moved if there was no peace with Mexico, but the vote was tied. The former President Lamar received a letter saying "the town of Austin was almost deserted, but the Archives were still present." A convection later met in Austin to consider the annexation of Texas to the United States.
