The causes of the Texas Rev

Some of the causes of the Texas Revolution was when Mexico tried to take Gonzalez`s cannon,and when the Texans crossed the border illegally. Some other causes was that Mexico said Texans could cross the border legal. As long as they followed there rules,but Texas said they would not follow some of the rules,and they made Texas pay taxes.Some other causes of the Texas Revolution was that if the Texans wanted too cross the border. They would have to become Roman Catholic,and when Stephen F Austin asked Santa Anna

if we could resolve the problems and we could be our own country. So Santa Anna threw Austin in jail and that really made the Texans mad. By the time Austin was realest it was too late. He could not make peace.
