BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: SLAVERY IN TEXAS TIME LINE OF IMAGES:

Under Spanish Mexican rule, most slavery was unacceptable in Texas. The issue of Slavery became a source of contentions between the Anglo-American and the Spanish Governors. The Governors feared the growth in the Anglo American population in Texas and for various reasons by early 19th century they and their superiors in Mexico City disapproved of expanding Slavery. In 1829 the " Guerrero Decree" conditionally abolished slavery through out all Mexican Territories. This was the reason that increased tension with the slave holders among the Anglo American.
















































After the Texas Revolution ended in 1836- European American greatly increased the enslaved population in the Republic and later the state of Texas as they encourage settlement and developed more acres  under cultivations in cotton and other commodities. The cotton industries flourished in East Texas were enslaved labor became most widely used.  Free and runaway slaves had great difficulty finding jobs in Texas. Some of them work as Cow Boys  herding cattle or migrating for better opportunities in the Mid-West,  California or South wards to Mexico.
