The Archives War

How it all Happened... By: Johnai Bennett

The Beginning

After some disagreement with the actions of the Lamar administration, Mexican leaders have now taken action of the situation.

General Rafael Vasquez,with the help of 700 soldiers, has attacked the following cities of Texas including:

- San Antonio

- Goliad

-Refugio

-Victoria

Archives War Comes To An End...

Luckily, Vasquez later returned to Mexico, but his return didn't ensure that the Texans were now safe. With the fear of an attack on Austin, President Houston demanded the withdraw of any records from the capital, but Austin residents disagreed. Austin residents, including Angelina Eberly fired at the officials who were loading the documents onto a wagon thus ending the Archives War, while the documents made there way back to Austin.
