Lone Star History

By Jeremiah R.
Texas, Age 14

Texas's anexation is such an important topic. Without that we would still be part of Mexico. Especially with all the violence nowadays. They had owed debt because of the war. So Sam Houston needed help from the U.S. So he asked Colt if they could go to the U.S. He said yes, but the reason he said yes was because,they needed to expand westward. But they had tried this before, with no success. So Mexico didn't recognize Texas as a state. So they didn't mind letting Texas anexate. So that was great news, and not a problem. So Texas was ready to go. It was all up to Sam Houston now. He said ''only in America''!!! So that was a yes. That is how Texas anexated to the United States of America.
