Today is the anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, when Texan forces defeated Santa Anna and his army. One of my favorite pieces of history in the Capitol building hangs behind the Speaker's dais in the House Chamber--the San Jacinto flag. The flag was lost for many years, but was returned to the State of Texas by a family in Tennessee in 1933, nearly 100 years after the battle. This is said to be the last original flag from Texas' fight for independence. Would love to know where the original Gonzales Come and Take It Flag ended up.
