Great Annexation

By Cesar G.
Texas, Age 12

Good morning I'm Mr.Y today I have a special report about Sam Houston and the annexation. Texas got independence from the Mexican government because they wanted to be part of Texas, but Texas said no to Mexico. Texas wanted the annexation after Texas got free from Mexico Sam Houston was elected 2nd term and favor annexation. After Sam Houston was elected 2nd term and favor the annexation, Texas wanted the U.S because they had lower food. Also Sam Houston send a letter to Polk asking for Help, and Polk said yes. At last Polk defended the annexation of Texas. Now you know some thing of Sam Houston, Plk, and the annexation.
