Dr. Crimm discusses the politics in the de Leon colony (Victoria Colony). In 1824, Martin and Patricia de Leon, who had 10 children, set out to establish a colony in Texas. The location of the colony created political issues and discord, as it was surrounded by the colonies of Austin, DeWitt, and many other Anglo settlers. Martin's son, Fernando, become the land commissioner and was in charge of assigning land to settlers. Fernando ran into problems with the Austin Colony and, in fact, was thrown in jail at one point by Stephen F. Austin for unknown reasons.
