Today in Texas History – December 19

Flag of Coahuila y Tejas

From the Annals of Remonstrances  –  In 1832, San Antonio de Bexar presented a list of grievances to the legislature of Coahuila y Tejas. The document known as the Bexar Remonstrance was signed by José Ángel Navarro, alcalde of San Antonio. It sought repeal of that part of the Law of April 6, 1830, banning immigration from the United States. It also sought the separation of Texas from Coahuila.

The flag of Coahuila y Tejas is shown.
