On April 21, 1836, and in eighteen minutes from start to finish, the Battle of San Jacinto occurred. It ended at 4:48 pm. General Sam Houston commanded some 900 Texians eager for revenge after the brutal massacre at Goliad of 445 Texan prisoners of war and for the defeat at the Alamo Mission in San Antonio just 57 days earlier.
The promise of a new nation, independent from Mexico, took firm root. It was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolutionary War.
The Texas Heroes Monument is located in Galveston, Texas at 25th and Broadway and was commissioned by Henry Rosenberg to commemorate the brave Texians who fought during the Texas Revolution including my GGG Grandfather, Captain Joseph Warren Sowell.
