Texas Statehood

The Arguing Begins

Sam Houston,the first president, wanted Texas to be apart of America because they could be safe. Most people agreed because of their safety, but some people wanted to stay independent because they could make their own laws. Most Americans didn't want Texas because it would be another slave state and because of Texas' debt problem, but others did want Texas because it could start another war.
