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."

—General Sam Houston, Before the Battle of San
Eighteen minutes that secured the Republic of Texas its independence- an event that changed the World, and with that said, remember always:

"Their actions were recorded in BLOOD -
their names should be written in
