Craigslist Austin

Who was Sehpehn Fuller Austin

Craigslist AustinStephen Fuller Austin was one of the great men of Texas in its early days. He was born in 1793 in Austinville, Virginia. His father, Moses Austin, went to Texas in 1821 to establish a colony there, but died the same year.

Texas was

then a part of Mexico. In 1822, Stephen Austin got permission from

the Mexican government to settle a colony of several hundred American

families in Texas, as his father had planned to do. In 1833 the

American colonists sent Austin to Mexico City, capital of Mexico, to

ask the Mexican government to allow Texas to have a separate state

government of its own.


The Mexicans refused and

put Austin in prison for a year. When he was released from prison and

returned home he found the Texans in revolt against Mexico. For a

time he was commander-in-chief of the Texas army that fought against

Mexico. Later he was sent to the United States to get money and

supplies for the army of Texas. In 1836, when Texas had become an

independent country after defeating the Mexicans, he ran for the

presidency of Texas but was beaten by Sam Houston. However, he became

secretary of state under President Houston. Austin died in December,

1836.
