The San Jacinto Museum, the San Jacinto Monument and the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site commemorate the historic Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.

For the Texians, led by General Sam Houston, victory at the Battle of San Jacinto created a new nation: The Republic of Texas. And the United States would eventually gain nine territories that reached to the Pacific Ocean.

San Jacinto Monument is the world's tallest war memorial, standing 15 feet taller than the Washington monument. The San Jacinto Museum of History is in the base of the monument. 

The 1,200-acre San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site also includes the Battleship TEXAS, the nation's first battleship memorial museum.
