The victory of the Texans at the Battle of San Jacinto is one of the most important events in Texas history. In just eighteen minutes, the revolutionary army overwhelmed the Mexican forces. The next morning, the Texans captured Santa Anna. Less than a month later, Santa Anna and ad interim president David G. Burnet agreed to the Treaties of Velasco to effectively end the Texas Revolution and grant Texas her independence.

Discover how these pivotal eighteen minutes changed the world in San Jacinto, the seventh and final eBook in TSHA's Road to the Texas Revolution series. In the eBook, you will find:

  • Biographies on several leaders in the Texan army and ad interim government, including Sam Houston, Thomas Rusk, and David G. Burnet.
  • An account of the Mexican War, the conflict between the United States and Mexico that soon followed the annexation of Texas.
  • The story of the acquisition, use, and loss of the "Twin Sisters" cannons.
  • Links to articles from the Southwestern Historical Quarterly and Texas Almanac relating to the Battle of San Jacinto and the survivors of the Texas Revolution.
