The Turtle Bayou Resolutions

Rebels drafted a set of resolutions explaining their actions. Ironically in light of later events, they identified themselves with the cause of Antonio López de Santa Anna, who was leading a so-called reform movement against the administration that had appointed Bradburn. In the Turtle Bayou Resolutions, the rebels first articulated ideas that would become central to the Texas revolutionary movement, including allegiance to the Mexican constitution of 1824. The resolutions were published in a Brazoria newspaper in July 1832.
