Bradburn jumped into the middle of the slavery controversy in early 1832 by taking in two run- away slaves. Refusing to release the pair to Patrick Jack and William B. Travis, attorneys for their Loui- siana owner, he defiantly added the fugitives to his roster. The plot thickened in April and May, when Bradburn refused to hand over for trial two soldiers accused of attempted rape. Pat- rick Jack responded to this infuriating intran- sigence with the creation of a citizens militia. A phony note claiming the Louisi- ana slave master was on his waywith 100 armed support- ers to re- cover his 1824. property threw the colonel into a panic. Learning Travis was responsible for the false alarm, Bradburn locked the lawyer and his partner Jack in the guardhouse. William Jack, Patrick's brother, sought the help of Stephen E Austin, but the sage of San Felipe was on a mission to Mexico. Without the empressario's reasoned restraint, the young firebrand mobilized the militants of the community, Augmented by contingents from Liberty, Harrisburg and Brazoria, an instant army on Jun. 26 pushed the Mexican remained in 130 strong headed for province to the brink.

Heads cleared, adrenalin ebbed and the insurgents paused long enough to consider the consequenc- es of their actions. Would the Anahuac incident provoke Mexican retaliation?
