While remembering the Alamo, I'd also suggest folk remember the reason why immigrant folk took up arms and rebelled against the lawful government of the territory. The "breach" in the treaty boiled down to one issue from whence all other issues flowed. Something Mexico did not allow, and something a fair number of the newcomers insisted was theirs and was their "right". (Witness a similar attitude among some Britons of roughly the same and slightly later periods and Americans then - and to a greater extent - now. They have these rights because they are what they are, no matter where they are in the world...)

Anyone guess? Its mentioned in the post by Owlkat...
