The Texas Revolution was a war between Texas and Mexico. Texas wanted freedom and Mexico wanted the land that Texas had. There was a lot of arguments and disagreements between the two sides before the war even started. The actual war started on October 2, 1835 in Gonzales, Texas. The Battle of Gonzales was the starting battle of the Revolution. There were many battles in the war and Texas finally won the war on April 21, 1836 after capturing much of the Mexican army and their leader, Santa Anna.
