These white Texan immigrants also wanted to maintain slavery since the Mexican government had abolished all forms of human enslavement in 1829.

"Early representations of Texas history were good people against bad guys, white versus brown, democracy against tyranny," said James Crisp, a historian at North Carolina State University, according to Splinter News.
