Texas Annexation

By: Sydney Tascione

Reasons For Annexation!

I am for annexation because we will have more safety for residents of the territory because the US Army would protect them. US Government money would be available to improve the territory. Some debt would be paid, a postal and bank system would be put into place. Annexation would add land to the Us border South and West helping the US to achieve the goal of reaching to the pacific ocean (Manifest Destinty).

Reasons For Annexation!

It would eliminate the threat of Mexico sending troops into the territory, killing residents and taking the land. It would provide protection from Native Americans (Indians). Southern states were in favor of expansion because it would add another pro slave state.
