The Archives War
What caused it?
The Archives War is not a true war, rather it was caused by the Mexican invasion lead by General Rafael Vasquez. General Vasquez and his 700 soldiers attacked multiple cities, which included San Antonio, Goliad, Refugio, and Victoria. But don't be alarmed, Vasquez retreated quickly.
Because of the Mexican invasion, our faithful president, Sam Houston ordered all government archives to be removed from Austin, for he feared an attack there. But there was an issue with Houston's order. The citizens of Austin opposed that order. They feared if the archives were removed, the capital would be moved to Houston again. Led by Angelina Eberly, Austin residents fired a cannon at the officials who were loading the documents into a wagon.
What do you think?
Should the capital be moved from Austin to Houston? Or should it be kept where it is? Don't be bias. Do you really think the capital should be kept at Austin, or moved to Houston?
