The region was too remote, separated from Mexico City by 800 miles of mountains, deserts, and more than a dozen rivers. And the Mexican government was plagued by instability, as presidents came and went every few years. S. immigrants, President Anastasio Bustamente (1780–1853) urged in 1830 that the government put in place strong restrictions on how many would be allowed into Texas. The resulting law, however, was hard to enforce and led to increased tensions as settlers were occasionally imprisoned.

Famous during his own lifetime and legendary ever since, Crocket died when the Mexican army attacked a small group of Texan fighters holed up at the Alamo, an old Spanish mission at San Antonio. Crockett was born to debt-ridden, impoverished parents in Greene County, Tennessee. He attended school for only very brief periods and went to work herding cattle when he was twelve. After running away from this job, Crockett made his own way in the world for three years. He learned to read by trading his labor for lessons with a Quaker teacher.

The years of war had left Mexico drained both socially and economically, and its new leaders had little experience in running such a large, troubled nation. As a result, two groups formed and now vied for dominance. One group, known as the conservatives, believed that political power should reside in a strong, centralized government that worked side by side with the Catholic 14 Mexican American War Church. The other group, the liberals, thought that power should be spread across the separate Mexican states and that the church’s influence should be limited.
