San Jacinto Day

Quote:
San Jacinto Day is the celebration of the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. It was the final battle of the Texas Revolution where Texas won its independence from Mexico.


Battle of San Jacinto

Quote:
The Battle of San Jacinto, fought on April 21, 1836, in present-day Harris County, Texas, was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution. Led by General Sam Houston, the Texian Army engaged and defeated General Antonio López de Santa Anna's Mexican army in a fight that lasted just 18 minutes.

Santa Anna, the President of Mexico, was captured and surrendered the following day and held as a prisoner of war. Three weeks later, he signed the peace treaty that dictated that the Mexican army leave the region, paving the way for the Republic of Texas to become an independent country. These treaties did not specifically recognize Texas as a sovereign nation, but stipulated that Santa Anna was to lobby for such recognition in Mexico City. Sam Houston became a national celebrity, and the Texans' rallying cries from events of the war, "Remember the Alamo!" and "Remember Goliad!," became etched into Texan history and legend.

I went to the San Jacinto monument many times. I also like the huge statue of Sam Houston North of Houston. I lived in Liberty, Tx for several years before moving this far South. The Sam Houston regional library is there and where I donated books, family photos and tin types.

As you can tell from my handle, I am a damnyankee from Pennsylvania who became a naturalized citizen of Texas. Smiley

I've lived in Texas 46 years, more than half my life.

Did you know that the San Jacinto Monument is taller than the Washington Monument?

Another little known fact about Texas is that John Richardson Harris, after whom Harris County, Texas, was named, was the grandson of John Harris, Sr., after whom Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was named?

Dirty little secret about Texas.  Most of the "native Texans" came from the northeast and the rejects from Louisiana.  Grin
