Presidio La Bahía where Texas settlers attacked the Mexican Army garrisoned there. The Battle of Goliad was the second skirmish of the Texas Revolution. However, within days of the Texian victory at the Battle of Gonzales, Captain George Collinsworth and members of the Texian militia in Matagorda began marching towards Goliad. The Texians soon learned that Cos and his men had already departed for San Antonio de Béxar but continued their march. The garrison at La Bahía was understaffed and could not mount an effective defense of the fort's perimeter.

Good info, as far as it goes. But it is so brief, at first I thought I was reading an introductory overview. For the price, there must be a better alternative.
Fordredor
Good book, but it was too short, it left me wanting more.
Drelahuginn
Informative pamphlet style, not book
Iarim
It was actually short.

Every kid who has gone through elementary school in or around Houston has been to the San Jacinto Monument on a field trip (and skinned a knee going down the stairs of the Battleship Texas, the WWI and II era ship which some kids mistakenly thought helped Sam Houston win the battle of San Jacinto). This book, the 3rd in the Fred Rider Cotten Popular History series, provides a concise description of the events leading to "one of the most decisive battles of the world" and the battle itself.

The book starts with colonists from America settling in Texas, content to be Mexican citizens. Changes in the Mexican government, brought about by Santa Anna as he came into power, swayed many of these settlers against Mexico, including the influential Stephen F, Austin; Austin was imprisoned under false pretenses for two years in Mexico, and upon his release, he used his influence for revolution and against Mexico.

Early victories heartened the revolutionaries, but the massacre at Goliad and defeat at the Alamo by Santa Anna's massive army put general Sam Houston and his smaller, undisciplined force retreating towards East Texas.

Dr. Pohl, a past President of the Texas State Historical Association, describes the retreat, Santa Anna's splitting of his army into three groups to try and trap Houston's army and Houston's issues with his "mob" and the Government. Pohl also reviews theories about Houston's decision process to keep his army away from one of Santa Anna's armies, in spite of internal and external pressures. He describes Santa Anna, worried about his government at home because of the sudden death of his loyal Vice President, and unable to take a ship home due to the strength and position of the Texas Navy, decides to take the lead of a force of his own and capture the Texan government.

Both armies meet on the well documented San Jacinto battlefield. Dr. Pohl reviews what is known and what is speculated to have happened April 19-21. It is clear that the Texas forces, undisciplined and outnumbered, used the rage of remembrance of Goliad and The Alamo to defeat with heavy casualties this part of the Mexican Army. Dr. Pohl points out that this could have been only a tactical victory if not for the seemingly lucky capture of Santa Anna, who one month later signed a treaty. As Dr. Pohl writes:

Even though the Mexican government later declared the treaty null and void, by sparing Santa Anna and requiring his support, Sam Houston established not only a Texas de facto but also a Texas de jure.

This book has 17 historical black and white images to accompany the story of the Battle.

This is really a long article rather than a book. It's a well organized and well written account of the battle itself and the events leading up to it, with capsule descriptions of Sam Houston and other major Texans. The narrative was fast moving and enjoyable to read.

The author points out all the improbable things that had to happen for the Texans to win their revolution.
The so-called "battle" of San Jacinto should really be called, a true MASSACRE of tired, exhausted Mexican troops. At San Jacinto, Santa Anna had at first about 600 troops, and then on the day of the Massacre, General Cos came into camp with 550 more exhausted troops who had just been forced marched FORTY (40) miles to get to San Jacinto. Seeing this, Santa Anna, a general who cared for his troops, ordered Cos to have the incoming troops stack their weapons, and let them cook their meals. As one Mexican tired soldier stated, "As soon as I lifted up my food to my mouth, there was commotion to our right." Hence 1/2 half of Santa Anna's troops were exhausted, and easy to defeat by a ready force. The Massacre lasted well into the evening, and not the 18 minutes that Texas historians want you to believe. Houston NEVER defeated the Mexican army, ONLY the vanguard of the Mexican army-the rest being at Old Fort, about 3,200 in all. What gave Texas its nationhood was Filisola cowardly obeying a captured Santa Anna, when he didn't have to, especially, since Houston was now burdened by 500 prisoners! De la Pena, General Urrea, and all the corps commanders wanted to attack Houston at the moment, but, Filisola started to act irrational, and ordered the army back to Matamoros-hence, it wasn't Texan bullets that made the army go back to Matamoros, but Filisola's cowardly actions that made Texas a new nation. Filisola would be court martial in January of 1837 for ordering the army back when he didn't have any military reason to do so. BTW, I translated four (4) affidavits of Mexican soldiers who made it back to Mexico, and none of them stated that there were any cries of, 'Remember the Alamo/Goliad at the Massacre of San Jacinto!
