With the desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto led by Sam Houston, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.
The Mystery at the Alamo (The Boxcar Children Mysteries #58)
While the book was a fictional mystery, it has many accurate facts about the Alamo.
If you have a Kindle, the first chapter is a free sample.
Bluebonnet at the Alamo, Mary Brooke Casad
The book gives the reader a brief tour of the river walk and the Alamo as viewed by two armadillos. The main plot revolves around Jim Bowie and his famous knife.
Writing, Painting and Drawing
The Early 19th Century. I like the suggestions for putting a piece of cardboard under the soldiers piece to make it look a little 3-D. (This might be a little hard to see in the photo, but it is cool.)
The writing area needed to be changed for my younger two's writing, so we glued it to another page.
Draw.Write.Now. Book Five by Marie Hablitzel and Kim Stitzer and in Draw and Write Through History, Napoleon to Lady Liberty: The World of the 1800's by Carylee Gressman and Peggy Dick
This set is great for playing and narrations.
In the Mexican–American War (1846–48), American forces quickly occupied New Mexico and California, then invaded parts of Northeastern Mexico and Northwest Mexico; meanwhile, the Pacific Squadron conducted a blockade, and took control of several garrisons on the Pacific coast further south in Baja California. After Mexico would still not agree to the cession of its northern territories, another American army captured Mexico City, and the war ended in victory of the U.S.
We made maps of how America grew, including the dates.
The detail of the maps depends on their abilities.
|Alex's notes for these presidents.|
Martin Van Buren, eighth President of the United States (1837–1841). His administration was largely characterized by the economic hardship of his time, the Panic of 1837, a period of runaway inflation which ended with every bank accepting payment only in gold and silver, forcing a dramatic,deflationary backlash. The Panic was followed by a five-year depression, with the failure of banks and then-record-high unemployment levels. He was scapegoated for the depression and called "Martin Van Ruin" by his political opponents.
William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 – April 4, 1841) was the ninth President of the United States (1841). Harrison died on his 32nd day in office of complications from pneumonia.
