After getting San Antonio in December, rebel Texans gave up the Alamo, a old mission in the center of town. They ignored orders from General Sam Houston, the guards remained in the Alamo as Santa Anna's Mexican army moved forward and laid siege in February of 1836. On March 6 they attacked.
After Battle of the Alamo, the Mexican President/General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna's army continued its steady march across Texas. On March 19, some Texans under the command of James Fannin were captured outside of Goliad. On March 27, nearly all of the prisoners and some surgerons were taken out and shot.
In early April, Santa Anna divided his army in three, witch was a big mistake. He left one part to guard his supply lines, sent another to try and catch the Texas Congress and set off in the third to try and mop up the last pockets of resistance. Houston caught up to Santa Anna at the San Jacinto River and for two days the armies skirmished. Then, on the afternoon of April 21, Houston attacked suddenly and ferociously.
