    Btw -- what is Manifest Destiny?

  • TX History -

    #2 : Manifest Destiny was the belief that Jackson wanted to add Texas to the union and he wanted the U.S. to expand to the Pacific Ocean. Because of that belief the Mexican-American war started.

    Manifest Destiny meant that the United States believed that it had a God-given right to take over all the territory between the two oceans. It didn't consider the rights of those who already lived in these territories.

    #4 Without Houston’s leadership, Texas probably wouldn’t be independent. He saw that the Texans needed to defeat the Mexicans instead of just attacking. He faced pressure but was still calm and could preserve and train his forces for the victory at San Jacinto. Other Texan leaders disobeyed him and suffered because of it. But Houston kept calm though all of it.

    "Ms. Sue" this is NOT a correct answer.
    Of course they needed to defeat them--why would anyone just keep attacking--but not part of anything detailing his contributions to Texas.
    Sam Houston faced pressure and stayed calm--but that is describing a different event. The Battle of San Jacinto was important for other reasons. Other Texan leaders disobeying him (and suffering for it) was never mentioned, certainly does not add to an argument that he was important to Texas history and is wrong.

    Any student using this answer will not get points.
