Although Lundy failed altogether in his plan to colonize
Negroes in Texas, his trips to that area had had another, more
important result. Upon his return to the United States in 1835,
he was able to convince the abolitionists of the validity of his view
of the Texas Revolution as a plot by slaveholders and land specu-

plot to wrest Texas from Mexico and thereby strengthen American
slave interests. In that manner Lundy's essays, a product of his
experiences in Texas, contributed to the alienation of the sec-
tions. His Texas trips were thus a significant factor in the grow-
ing controversy that eventually would lead to the disruption
of the Union.
