This flag was created by the ladies of Newport, Kentucky for Sidney Sherman’s Newport volunteers and left with them on their departure to assist the Texians in their fight for freedom. The flag depicts Lady Liberty, wielding a sword and a banner that says “LIBERTY OR DEATH”. Outnumbered again and shouting the battle cry “Remember Goliad! Remember the Alamo!” 930 Texians rushed into Santa Anna’s army of 1500 and won the battle in 18 minutes. Santa Anna was captured, surrendered and the Texas Revolution was over. Measured by its results, the battle of San Jacinto is considered by military historians as one of the most important battles in the history of the world. The acquisition of land from the battle, annexation and subsequent events, made possible only by this victory, not only produced Texas but New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Utah and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Nearly 1 million square miles, almost 1/3 of the present U.S.A. can be tied to that day at San Jacinto. The original flag is encased and rests at the Texas House of Representatives in Austin.
