Texas Annexation

By Serena S.
Texas, Age 12

Texas was tired of Mexico being connected with them.So Texas fought for independence against Mexico, and they they got independence.The Texans were were finally free, and happy.This happened in the late 1830's.Then they started having financial problems.Mexico was starting to get bossy,until Texans got tired again and fought.
Finally Sam Houston was elected 2nd term in favor of annexation.Then Texas started having money problems,but once again they had states rights.Luckily the Texans dealed with their financial problems.
Later on Texans asked Polk for help and protection.Polk said yes,because he wanted to spread the westward.Thats when Polk agreed to annexation.So because of Polk Texans do not have finacial problems,and the westward was spread.
