Best Answer

They differed on Indian Affairs with Lamar favoring removal or extinction.

Houston favored US annexation and Lamar backed independence.

They differed on fiscal policy and banking.

As a historical footnote, Mirabeau Bonaparte Lamar was an unknown Private in the Texas Army who was promoted to Colonel for bravery and given command of the Texas Cavalry the next day at the Battle of San Jacinto by Houston. The two were opposites on every important issue of the day.
