THE FIRST TEXIAN CASUALTY "At eleven o'clock that night they reached the presidio, forced open the doors of the chapel where the Mexican soldiers were quartered, and after a brief skirmish, accepted the surrender of the defenders.

Historical Fact #5
WHERE DID THE STATE OF TEXAS COME FROM?
WHAT ABOUT ANNEXATION?
Eventually, an agreement was reached to annex Texas by compact. Through a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress, Texas was supposedly annexed to the United States. Other states are admitted to the union, not annexed!
In the records of congress, however, the annexation of the Republic of Texas is referred to as the "re-annexation" of Texas and also referred to as part of the Louisiana Purchase. How could this be? Was the U.S. already attempting to cover up the fraud of the "annexation?"
Ratification by a 2/3 majority vote is required to admit a state to the union. In the case of Texas this did not happen, but by a simple majority and a joint resolution of Congress.
Spain and France confirmed the boundaries of Texas. Further, the United States did not "purchase" the lands in the Louisiana Purchase, but only purchased the forts, arsenals and streets of New Orleans. The lands of the Louisiana Purchase were ceded back to the ancient ones (Washita Indians) by Napoleon himself, in the Louisiana Purchase documents!
Historical Fact #6

Voted out of the United States by the convention of county delegates
Voted out of the United States by the People (Texians)
None of the above votes were ever repealed!

Historical Fact #7
WHY TEXAS IS NOT A STATE ACCORDING TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
We have seen no reference to Texas ever being admitted as a State of the Union. It is always referred to as an annexation or re-annexation, as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
The argument of Texas being able to split into five states would be null and void lawfully, since the Constitution of the United States would have greater authority than the compact/contract between the U.S. and the Republic of Texas, unless it was a treaty between two powers. However, upon instituting the presumed statehood, would the treaty become null and void, since the state of Texas would be bound by the U.S. Constitution?
The United States violated their own Constitution when it militarily took lands from Texas and made those lands parts of other States. The Compromise of 1850 between Texas and the United States breached the compact between the Republic of Texas and the U.S. and removed lands from Texas.
DOES THE UNITED STATES CONSIDER TEXAS AS PROPERTY OF THE UNITED STATES?
Texas was not admitted as one of the several States of the Union and the records prove that the attitude of the U.S. Congress towards Texas was re-annexation. Did the United States consider Texas as its Territory or Property which it presumed to take authority over, and dispose of lands belonging to Texas? How could the United States re-annex another nation, with which it had treaties as a foreign power?
Historical Fact #9
FREEMEN or FREEDMEN? The Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves is marked with fraud and deceit.
- In Texas historical documentation, the emancipated slaves are not called freemen by the United States writings and carpetbaggers. They are referred to as freedmen. This continued to make the ex-slaves a marked class of people. They were not given free-man status but freed-man status.
- The word emancipation, when taken back through word study into the ancient Roman civil law does not mean to make or set free. It means the slave was sold to the State!
- Frederick Douglass, abolitionist, hero for the freed slaves, former slave, and U.S. Ambassador complained of his token status. He also remarked that until the "chattel slavery" upon all persons was lifted that no man would truly be free.
