Invasion of Louisiana by Texans - 1839
VAN BUREN, MARTIN. [REPUBLIC OF TEXAS] MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES COMMUNICATING INFORMATION IN RELATION TO THE INVASION OF THE SOUTHWESTERN FRONTIER BY AN ARMED FORCE FROM THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS. [Washington]: Thomas Allen, 1839. First Edition. Disbound. 6pp. 25th Congress, 3rd Session. House. Executive. Doc. No. 71. Very interesting record of correspondence between Louisiana and Washington in regard to the "invasion" of Louisiana by a large group of armed Texians. The "invasion" was by a group of 75-100 armed men from Texas who were in pursuit of Caddo Indians. They were intent on disarming the Caddoes, who they claimed were committing depredations in Texas, with arms provided by their U.S. agent. Scarce record of an interesting event in the history of the Republic of Texas. Fine.
