A native of San Antonio, Juan Seguín is probably the most famous Tejano to be involved in the War of Texas Independence.

His story is complex because he joined the Anglo rebels and helped defeat the Mexican forces of Santa Anna.

Most were Mexican Americans of Spanish descent and other Hispanicized European settlers who settled in the Southwest during Spanish colonial times, as well as local and Mexican Indians.

Both groups were settled mostly in the eastern part of the territory.

The Mexican government became concerned about the increasing volume of Anglo-American immigration and restricted the number of settlers from the United States allowed to enter Texas.

Although the events of 1836 led to independence for the people of Texas, the Hispanic population of the state was very quickly disenfranchised, to the extent that their political representation in the Texas State Legislature disappeared entirely for several decades.

As a Spanish colony, the territory of California also had an established population of colonial settlers.

In effect this meant that the government took control of large and vast areas of land.
