When they learned that Santa Anna was marching an army towards them, many Texian settlers left their homes and fled east in terror. Thousands of civilians, mostly led by women, made the difficult, dangerous journey known as the Runaway Scrape. Join us at our February San Jacinto Family Day program to hear real stories of the Runaway Scrape and see if you can make it to safety in the Surviving the Runaway Scrape game.
