Recognize Texas as a Republic
Texas Official, Sam Houston
Texas will not stand your ignorance any longer. Texas has emerged victorious from the Revolution and now are a Republic, whether or not you accept it.
Though the Battle of Gonzales gave us a false sense of security, the massacres that you created strengthened our resolve and gave us our glorious win at the Battle of San Jacinto. In the Battle of San Jacinto when we captured your leader, Santa Anna, he signed the treaty of his own free will.
It was a very gracious to offer to finally recognize us as a republic if we do not annex with the Union, but they can provide us with necessities that we can not provide on our own.
