San Jacinto Day in Texas

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.
It is an official holiday in the State of Texas. An annual festival, which includes a reenactment, is held on the site of the battle.
In 1836, Texian troops surprised the Mexican army camped here, in San Jacinto. Shouting “Remember the Alamo” and “Remember Goliad,” the rebels routed the larger force in only 18 minutes.

Quotes & Wishes - America would be a very different place America would be a very different place

There were ’big stars’ at the Alamo! Bowie, Crockett! It is a huge political event because it, and the events at Goliad and San Jacinto, changed the look of a map of America. America would be a very different place if Texas had remained Mexican.

Quotes & Wishes - Before the battle of San Jacinto Before the battle of San Jacinto

We view ourselves on the eve of battle. We are nerved for the contest, and must conquer or perish. It is vain to look for present aid: none is at hand. We must now act or abandon all hope! Rally to the standard, and be no longer the scoff of mercenary tongues! Be men, be free men, that your children may bless their father’s name.

Quotes & Wishes - The scene among refugee families on the Sabine River The scene among refugee families on the Sabine River

...waving his hat and shouting "San Jacinto! San Jacinto! The Mexicans are whipped and Santa Anna a prisoner." The scene that followed beggars description. People embraced, laughed and wept and prayed, all in one breath. As the moon rose over the vast flower-decked prairie, the soft southern wind carried peace to tired hearts and grateful slumber. As battles go, San Jacinto was but a skirmish; but with what mighty consequences! The lives and the liberty of a few hundred pioneers at stake and an empire won! Look to it, you Texans of today, with happy homes, mid fields of smiling plenty, that the blood of the Alamo, Goliad, and San Jacinto sealed forever. Texas, one and indivisible!
