The Alamo has partnered with the Texas Historical Commission, the San Jacinto Museum, and Presidio La Bahía to present San Jacinto Day: Texas Remembers, live on the Alamo's Facebook page on Tuesday, April 21.
Every year during Fiesta, the Alamo hosts special events to honor the Texan Army's victory at the Battle of San Jacinto including the Daughters of the Republic of Texas' annual pilgrimage to the Alamo. Due to COVID-19 and Fiesta being rescheduled for November, San Jacinto Day has been adapted to a special online event so that Texans can continue to celebrate Texas's rich history together. San Jacinto Day: Texas Remembers will also be a great opportunity for parents to add to their child's learning experience while at home, especially 4th and 7th grade students taking Texas history classes.
