    San Jacinto Day Sunday, April, 21st

    Two great remembrances rolled into one day. Of course, it's Easter, and it's also San Jacinto Day for all us Texans. So it's time to fly your Texas flags if you don't already fly them every day!

    For those who don't know, are interested, or need a refreshed memory, here is the history from Wikipedia. Casualty rates for this battle are interesting.

    Texas friendly, spoken here.

    TEXAS, by Gawd!!!!!!

    As to casualty rates just remember, Sam Colt hadn't even invented the revolver, yet! Fighting was done with guns that loaded down the barrel.....and knives and swords had a real purpose on the battlefield.

    Texas !! God bless her.

    I look up in my office at my Texas Declaration of Independence and the Texas Call to Arms, and my heart swells with pride.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I noticed while reading that Wiki link that quotes were attributed to "Hardin". This guy is a historian that's been on History channel shows as a consultant for shows on Texas history and was a professor of history at University of Houston Victoria. My daughter was in his class when she was at UHV. He's since gotten kinda sorta famous in the field and moved on to bigger colleges somewhere.
