San Jacinto Day

As we marked last year, and the year before, today is the 175th anniversary of the battle of San Jacinto in which the Republic of Texas won her independence from Mexico. General Sam Houston won the day, and although I'm not exactly a huge fan of the man, I do give him all due credit for that.
