Sam Houston could not have predicted the events leading up to March 2, 1836, the day the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed (and Houston was named the Commander-in-Chief), nor could he have anticipated all that would take place before the conclusion
of the Texas Revolution.
The beginning of the revolution is recognized to have taken place 5 months earlier, on October 2, 1835, in Gonzales. Mexican soldiers attempted to retrieve a cannon that was previously given to the American colonists by the Mexican government. Already demonstrating the spirit of independence, the colonists replied about the small cannon behind them, “Come and take it!” A skirmish ensued, sparking the revolution and the long road to Texas independence.
One week later, General Martin Perfecto de Cos led an initiative to reestablish Mexican control over the Gulf Coast, but this was thwarted by Texian dissenters who seized a fort at Goliad. Shortly thereafter, the Battle of Concepcion and the small surprise attack called the Grass Fight went beyond simply straining relations.
For the better part of a week, from December 5th to 9th, the Siege of Bexar became the first serious engagement that resulted in surrender by General Cos and the Mexican Calvary. It also greatly added to General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna’s conviction to drive
the settlers out of Texas.
While Houston was signing the Texas Declaration of Independence at Washington-on-the-Brazos, Colonel James Bowie, Lt. Colonel William Barrett Travis, and Davy Crockett led over 200 Texians during their last stand at the Alamo. They were outnumbered by the Mexican army by a ratio of greater than 10:1, yet they held the fort for 13 days until the siege ended on March 6, 1836. All of the Texian fighters were executed and the surviving women and children were told to spread word to the settlers to get out of Texas.
On March 13, General Houston ordered everyone to leave their homes and belongings and to burn them all (so the Mexican army wouldn’t benefit from usage). The settlers fled eastward, and their flight became known as the Runaway Scrape.
Two weeks later, Santa Anna ordered the execution of 345 men at Goliad. Similar outcomes occurred at the battles of Refugio and Coleto.
In all, 400 were executed.
On April 21, 1836, General Houston and his modestly-sized volunteer army surprised and defeated the Mexican army at the Battle of San Jacinto amidst cries of “Remember the Alamo!” and “Remember Goliad!”

ONE TRIBE FOUNDATION
What started out as a social media campaign (the 22-pushup challenge) over 10 years ago has grown into a full-blown mental and emotional wellness organization for Veterans, first responders, law enforcement officers, and their families.A group of Marines who gave a damn got sick of burying their brothers and sisters who were dying by their own hand. So they decided to do something about it and 22KILL was born. In 2021, we changed our name to One Tribe, meaning the Human Tribe.
We all bleed red.
