Miscellaneous Wars
 Mexican War


2004 - FORT VELASCO, TEXAS, TEXAS INDEPENDENCE STARTED HERE, on June 26, 1832, when Texans under John Austin and Henry Smith came down river with cannon for use against Mexican forces at Anahuac. They ran against the resistance of Lt. Col. Domingo de Ugartechea. As commander of Mexican forces at Velasco, Ugartechea refused passage through the mouth of the Brazos River to the vessel bearing the cannon to Anahuac. Some 112 Texans attacked the port at midnight, and after 9 hours under the fire of Texas rifles and cannon, the Mexican garrison was forced to surrender. The Battle of Velasco, brought on by a customs quarrel at Anahuac, was unknowingly fought after the dispute at Anahuac had been peaceably settled. After the victory at San Jacinto 4 years later, President David G. Burnet moved the capital of the Republic of Texas temporarily to Velasco. Here the Treaty of Velasco, ending hostilities between Texas and Mexico, was signed on May 14, 1836. 69 Caliber musket balls c. 1836, excavated on the beach at Freeport, Texas [Fort Velasco].

MEXICAN WAR NEWSPAPER FROM NEW ORLEANS

The paper that published the Mexican War news first! We have several Mexican War dated issues of the Daily Picayune of New Orleans that was published by George Kendall. George Wilkins Kendall, who founded the New Orleans Picayune in 1837, guided the newspaper for thirty years and built it into a powerful force in behalf of America's westward expansion. Kendall's vigorous editorials championed the cause of the infant Republic of Texas. When the Texas Santa Fe Expedition was organized in 1841, for the purpose of occupying New Mexico (then still under Mexican rule), Kendall left his editorial chair to participate - and was marched off to Mexico a captive for seven months when the expedition was overwhelmed at Santa Fe. A few years thereafter, when he accompanied American first war correspondent, reporting directly from the battlefront. His effective courier expresses brought the first news of each battle to an eager nation, including President Polk, who often read news of the war in Kendall's Picayune before hearing the same from his field commanders.
