Re-enactment of the Battle of San Jacinto

The Battle of San Jacinto, fought on April 21, 1836, in present-day Harris County, Texas, (near 22 miles east of Houston) was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution.
Santa Ana, the President of Mexico was captured and signed a treaty resulting in the creation of the Republic of Texas. Each year this battle is re-enacted by local history buffs. I traveled down for the event.. The weather looked good with a small chance of showers the night. The small chance of showers resulted in 4 inches of rain! Only a small skirmish took place due to the flooding. It was an enjoyable time creating images and exploring Texas History.
