Join us at the Alamo on Saturday, April 20 as Texans continue to celebrate their independence 188 years after the Battle of San Jacinto. Presented in partnership with the Alamo Heroes Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, the San Jacinto Victory Celebration will take place in Alamo Plaza beginning at 10 a.m.

Texas Independence was won on April 21, 1836 at the Battle of San Jacinto. The Texans were shouting the now famous Battle Cry “Remember the Alamo-Remember Goliad." The Battle of San Jacinto only lasted 18 minutes, yet it forever changed the history of Texas and the world.

Learn about the Victory at San Jacinto from our honored speakers, enjoy the winning essay by an area student, and pay homage to those Texans who fought so valiantly for Texas Independence.

The Alamo Heroes Chapter has served the San Antonio area for many years, celebrating their 30 year anniversary in 2023.
