Précis 4 The Anglos justified their actions on the Mexican border because the people in Texas and the surrounding area had taken to American ways so readily that they were hardly even Mexican anymore. However I believe the Mexican’s reactions were more convincing José María Sánchez traveled to Texas in 1828 and described what he saw there, “…They have adopted their customs and habits, and one may say truly that they are not Mexicans except by birth, for they even speak Spanish with marked incorrectness.” The Anglos did not take Mexican land; the people on that land were hardly Mexicans at all. He goes on to tell of the dismal state of the towns later in his journal, “It consists, at present, of forty or fifty wooden houses on the western bank of the large river…the houses are not arranged systematically so as to form streets, but on the contrary lie in an irregular and desultory manner. The towns were barely towns; they were more a collection of houses near each other.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
