During the Second Texan-Mexican War, both sides during the war adopted a policy of attacking everyone on the enemy's side. It began when the Mexican Army began killing Anglo Settlers during the California Revolution. When the Texan army arrived, around 29,000 citizens had died, both Anglo and Mexican. The Texan army started driving out the weak Mexican Militias and as revenge, adopted a Scorched Earth Policy, and around 30,000 Mexicans died from the destruction of dozens of towns and villages. The Massacres soon became known as the Californian Massacres. Today, many UN officals agree that these were an example of Genocide on both sides. On January 20th, 2011, the Republic of Texas offically appoligized for the massacres.
