The Battle of San Jacinto was the moment when the independence of Texas went from a declaration to a war cry. On April 21, 1836, approximately 800 Texians stood their ground outside of Houston near Lynch's Ferry and faced the army of Santa Ana which comprised of approximately 1,400 men. That the Texians won a well-planned battle was a statement to their fortitude, strentgh and determination. That they only lost 9 men with 26 wounded while nearly taking out half of the Mexican force that they faced, was a statement to the fierceness of their pride in Texas!

All of the men and women who served in the Texian army during this battle were heroes and should be remembered as such for years to come!

Did You Know...?

Santa Anna was deathly afraid of water. When he fled the scene of the Battle of San Jacinto, he rode his horse to the bridge over Vince's Bayou. Deaf Smith had blown up the bridge a short time earlier, making the battlefield an island and causing Santa Anna to choose between enterring the water or being captured by Texian forces. He chose capture. Considering there was a 50/50 chance that a Texian soldier would shoot him on sight, it is clear that Santa Anna's fear of water was extreme. Henry Wax Karnes, a captain of cavalrymen, was assigned by General Sam Houston to find Santa Anna during the melee. He came across one soldier who claimed to be Santa Anna and he killed him. He did not find Santa Anna, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the Mexian General.
