“Remember the Alamo!” “Remember Goliad!” Shouted the Texian troops led by Gen. Sam Houston when they surprised the Mexican army that was camped here in 1836. The decisive Battle of San Jacinto resulted in Texas’ independence from Mexico. This 1,200-acre park includes the towering San Jacinto Monument and the San Jacinto Museum of History. Walk in the Texian soldiers’ footsteps on the grounds, explore the museum, and ride the elevator to the top of the monument to take in a bird’s-eye view of where Texas’ independence was won.
