  • Q1
    What does the following passage refer to? Under the empresario system—which was created by the Mexican government in the 1820s to encourage colonization in Texas so as to secure control over its northern terriorty —men like the Edwards were allowed to settle Anglo families in Texas. However, many of the Anglo settlers retained stronger ties to the United States than to Mexico, and Benjamin Edwards hoped that many former Americans would support his attempt to split from Mexico. Accompanied by a force of about 30 men, Edwards declared that the new “Republic of Fredonia” was now independent of Mexican control.

  • Q3
    Which title is most appropriate for the following passage? Growing concerns over the possibility of revolution in the Mexican territory led Mexican officials to take steps to make Texas a less attractive place to settle in order to stop the flow of Anglos pouring in from the U.S. Mexican President Guerrero abolished slavery in 1829. In 1830, Mexican officials passed a law to limit immigration from the U.S. It placed customs duties (taxes) on goods coming into Texas from the U.S. Mexican soldiers were sent to Texas to enforce these new laws and previous laws Anglos were ignoring.
