Engraved frieze on the San Jacinto Monument, With the Battle Cry

Description: Photograph of an engraved frieze on the San Jacinto Monument in La Porte. It reads: "With the battle cry, "Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!" the Texans charged.

On the following day General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, self-styled "Napoleon of the West," received from a generous foe the mercy he had denied Travis at the Alamo and Fannin at Goliad."
