San Jacinto

A work in progress is the battle of San Jacinto. This rout of Mexican forces under Santa Anna ended the Texas Revolution and made a hero of Sam Houston. The battle may have turned out differently or not been such a cakewalk for the Texians if Santa Anna had not dithered away the morning and, instead, attacked the rebel forces first. Or if sentries had been posted to prevent the surprise attack that historically happened. Or if more Mexican reinforcements had arrived from San Antonio other than Cos' battalion. This game will feature an order of battle by Dennis L. Bishop.
