Important announcements about this week

Okay, kids in my 1st hour, your 11-13 Test will be over chapters 11-13, but the info about 13 is going to be very basic since you were taking the PSAT during class Wednesday. So I will ask you more simple recall questions from the text such as: After what battle did Texas gain independence? What was William Henry Harrison like? Why did the Anglos in Texas rebel against Mexican rule (Hint- slavery plays a role)? What was the “corrupt bargain?” etc. The terms for chapter 13 would probably be a big helper for study.

I WILL ask you about posts that I put up on the blog over chapters 11-13, though. So make sure you have read or watched them.

Why did the Anti-Masonic Party begin?

Because of the Morgan Affair of 1826, of course. Click and read, or paste into your browser:
