San Jacinto Flag
San Jacinto Flag

This was the banner the Texans carried at one of the greatest turning points in American history. Santa Anna's army of over 6,000 men swept across Texas to Lynch's Ferry, a gathering point for retreating Texas settlers.

Santa Anna led one column onto a narrow peninsula, surrounded by San Jacinto Bay and Buffalo Bayou, and set up camp. The Texas army rushed to the opportunity, marching nearly all night, and at dawn of the next day were on the edge of the grassy plains of San Jacinto.

After brief skirmishes, the Texans advanced at 4 o'clock on the afternoon of April 21st, 1836. With cries of "Remember the Alamo" and "Remember Goliad," they charged into the Mexican camp. The attack was so sudden that the battle was over in less than 20 minutes. Of the original Mexican force of 1500 men, 630 were killed on the spot, 208 were wounded and 730 were captured.

Only 743 Texans were in battle; 6 were killed and another 25 wounded, including Sam Houston. Santa Anna was captured, and the war was over. By early June, the entire Mexican army had crossed the Rio Grande, and Texas was free!
