Santa Anna disolved congress and established a dictatorship. American immigrant Texans were not the ony ones who rebelled. Mamy Mexicans in Texas , as well as several other Mexican states also rebelled, among them: Coahuila y Tejas, San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, Durango, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Yucatán, Jalisco, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, and Zacatecas. Texas was the only one that succeeded. Had they failed the people of the US Southwest would now be enjoying the same high standard of living now enjoyed by the people of Mexico.The rebellion started out as an effort to restore the Constitution of 1824 not gain independence./The more you know.
