Just like the American Revolution, the Texas Revolution had its opening battle, citizens for and against independence, and a convention of delegates who met to declare independence and write a constitution. The Texas delegates had to work much faster than the delegates who met to write the United States Declaration of Independence, however. Santa Anna's Mexican army was hot on their trail! In this activity, you will learn more about the men and events at the Convention of 1836.
