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.
