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!
