There will also be a reenactment of the Battle of San Jacinto beginning at 3:00 p.m. Come watch the Texas Army and the Mexican army fight the decisive battle in the war for Texas Independence on Texas 175th birthday. The festival and the battle re-enactment will be held at the San Jacinto Battleground and State Historic Site. The Texian victory at San Jacinto would eventually lead to almost a million square miles of Mexican territory becoming part of the United States of America.
At the base of the San Jacinto Monument, there will plenty of entertainment and educational activities. We also have it on good authority that the “Rolling Thunder” cannon will also be present with members of Lone Star Volunteers to discuss the importance of cannons like “Rolling Thunder” in the decisive Battle of San Jacinto. There will also be plenty of music, activities, crafts and games for everyone. Be sure and bring the kids.
