  • Declaration of Independence (1836)
    A statement of a part of our grievances is therefore submitted to an impartial world in justification of the hazardous but unavoidable step now taken of severing our political connexion with the Mexican People and assuming an independent attitude among the nations of the earth The Mexican Government by its colonization laws invited and induced the Anglo American population of Texas to colonize its wilderness under the pledged faith of a written constitution that they should continue to enjoy that constitutional liberty and republican Government to which they had been habituated in the land of their birth the United States of America In this expectation they have been cruelly disappointed inasmuch as the Mexican nation has acquiesced in the late changes made in the Government by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana who having overturned the Constitution of his country now offers us the cruel alternative either to abandon our homes acquired by so many privations or submit to the most intolerable of all tyranny the combined despotism of the sword and the priesthood It hath sacrificed our welfare to the State of Coahuila by which our interests have been continually depressed through a jealous and partial course of legislation carried on at a far distant seat of Government by a hostile majority in an unknown tongue and this too notwithstanding we have petitioned in the humblest terms for the establishment of a separate State Government and have in accordance with the provisions of the National Constitution presented to the General Congress a Republican Constitution which was without just cause contemptuously rejected It incarcerated in a dungeon for a long time one of our citizens for no other cause but a zealous endeavor to procure the acceptance of our Constitution and the establishment of a State Government It has failed and refused to secure on a firm basis the right of trial by jury that palladium of civil liberty and only safe guarantee for the life liberty and property of the citizen It has failed to establish any public system of education although possessed of almost boundless resources the public domain and although it is an axiom in political science that unless a People are educated and enlightened it is idle to expect the continuance of civil liberty or the capacity for self government It has suffered the military commandants stationed among us to exercise arbitrary acts of oppression and tyranny thus trampling upon the most sacred rights of the citizen and rendering the military superior to the civil power It has dissolved by force of arms the State Congress of Coahuila and Texas and obliged our Representatives to fly for their lives from the seat of Government thus depriving us of the fundamental political right of representation It has demanded the surrender of a number of our citizens and ordered military detachments to seize and carry them into the interior for trial in contempt of the civil authorities and in defiance of the laws and the Constitution It has
