Eventually, though, the public opinions of North American settlers in the territory and in Washington would make him realize that the goal of unity between the two groups was impossible. There were many cultural bricks laid by Spaniards, English, Mexicans, and Americans, which built a wall of cultural difference between the Mexicans and Americans so massive that it would lead to war. The Spanish and the English laid the first bricks during the sixteenth century. The English viewed the Spanish as “heartless and genocidal” (De Leon 4). Ironically, the Spaniards’ cruelty to Indians in Latin America was the primary reason for the English’s characterization.
Tensions between the central Mexican government and the settlers eventually led to the Texas Revolution. After the revolution, many were discouraged by the treatments they received at the hands of Texans, who suspected and accused the Tejanos of sabotage and of aiding Santa Anna. Rebels in Mexico wrote a manifesto that was circulated in the town of San Diego, Texas in 1915. Numerous cross-border raids took place and there were murders and sabotage. However, the Texas Rangers smashed the rebellion.
