Sam Houston elected 2nd term and in favor annexation. Sam Houston finally got thier independents form Mexico. Then Texas wanted protecton from the United States. So Sam Houston asked the forces if they could send some of thier troops over to Texas. They didn't want to because of the problems they had like slavery,war,and the money. A guy named pope heard about the annexation. So he ran for government. When he ran for government alot of people voted for him. So he thought I would like to expand he U.S. to the west. So then it happened Texas became part of the United States. The people from Texas were very happy that they got protection form the U.S. and the U.S. spread to the west.
