San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site
The battle cry of “Remember the Alamo!” is famous around the world, but that battle was only one small moment in Texas’s struggle for independence from Mexico. Not as well known outside of Texas are sites like the San Jacinto Battleground, where Texas is said to have won its independence in a battle in 1836. Comprised of coastal cities such as Galveston and Freeport as well as Houston, Victoria, Brenham and westward towards San Antonio, the 28-county Independence Trail tells the story of Texas independence, from the Spanish missions, to the battlefields and the interwoven stories of those who made Texas history what it is today.
