SAN JACINTO The Victory that gave us Texas!
Come to this hallowed battleground for a symposium on San Jacinto, the victory that gave us Texas! "The battle at the Alamo is sacred, but victory at San Jacinto gave us Texas," says James E. Crisp, PhD, who returns for his 15th stint as symposium moderator. "It is not often you can hear historians discuss one of the most important battles in history - then tour the actual battle site on the same day." Crisp is a Fellow of the Texas State Historical Association and Professor of History at North Carolina State University.
In the morning, hear scholars discuss the ordinary Texan and Mexican soldiers and their arms and battle tactics. After lunch, tour the battleground (tours optional). Teachers earn six CPE credits for the full day.
The 17th annual San Jacinto Symposium is on Saturday, April 8, 2017, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
at The Monument Inn, 4406 Independence Parkway South (formerly Battleground Road), La Porte, Texas 77571
