Does anyone have the rest of the correct answers????
The correct answer is the treaty of Velasco. To arrive at this answer, we can consider the options provided and eliminate the incorrect ones by explaining the events related to the end of the Texas Revolution.
1. Texans' defended their cannon at Gonzales: This incident occurred in 1835 and marked the beginning of the Texas Revolution, rather than its end. It was known as the Battle of Gonzales and was the first military engagement of the revolution.
2. The United States annexed Texas: Texas was indeed annexed by the United States, but this event took place on December 29, 1845, which was after the Texas Revolution. Therefore, it cannot be the correct answer.
3. Texas won control of the Alamo: This statement is incorrect. Texas did not win control of the Alamo during the Texas Revolution. The Alamo, a mission-turned-fortress in San Antonio, was defended by Texian rebels against the Mexican army, leading to a siege and the eventual massacre of the defenders in 1836.
4. Mexico agreed to the treaty of Velasco: This is the correct answer. The treaty of Velasco was signed on May 14, 1836, between the Republic of Texas and Mexico. The treaty officially ended the Texas Revolution and recognized Texas as an independent republic.
Therefore, the event that marked the end of the Texas Revolution was Mexico agreeing to the treaty of Velasco.
