Battle of San Jacinto, Texas
Informaton and Roster



At the Battle of San Jacinto, the Texas army under General Sam Houstan defeated the Mexican army under Santa Anna. This battle ended the war, and Texas earned its independence from Mexico.

source"Carruth, Gorton. "The Encyclopedia of American Facts and Dates". 10th Ed. New York: Harper Collins Publishers. ©1997.

.....After the fall of the Alamo, the small army of Texas retreated eastward in the spring of 1836. The troops were becoming increasingly impatient, however, by the time they reached Buffalo Bayou, a few miles southeast of present day Houston. On the morning of the April 19, the Texans crossed over and marched down the right bank of Buffalo Bayou to within half a mile of its confluence with the San Jacinto River.
Here, the army prepared their defenses on the edge of a grove of trees. Their rear was protected by timber and the bayou, while before them was an open prairie. On the following morning, Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna brought his Mexican army towards the Texans. The Texan's artillery brought him to a sudden halt. Falling back to a clump of trees a quarter of a mile distant, Santa Anna formed in line of battle. The main forces of the Texas army were there, totaling about 750 men. They faced over 1500 of the enemy, secure and flushed with pride at the offense they had enjoyed for the previous few weeks against the Texans. Outside of a cavalry charge by Colonel Sydney Sherman on the Mexican army, little fighting took place for the rest of April 20.

Early in the morning, Houston sent Deaf Smith, the celebrated Texas spy, with two or three men, to destroy Vince's bridge over which the Mexican army had passed, thus cutting off their only available escape. When Houston's long awaited order to advance was given, the Texans did not hesitate. General Houston ordered his troops to advance toward the Mexican camp at about 4 p.m. They were hidden by the crest of a hill between the two camps. It took the Texians about thirty minutes to cover the distance to within 100 yards of the Mexican breastworks when the shooting began. When the word "fire" was given, the Texan shouts of "Remember the Alamo" and "Remember Goliad" rang along the entire line.The actual battle at San Jacinto lasted less than 18 minutes although the slaughter continued until dark. General Houston and his officers tried to stop the continued killing but the enraged soldiers sought revenge for the slaughter at the Alamo and at Goliad. Within a short time, 700 Mexicans were slain, with another 730 taken as prisoners. The battle for Texas was won. Texas declared its independence on March 2, 1836 and less than two months later, on April 21, won that independence from Mexico by defeating the Mexican dictator Santa Anna at the Battle at San Jacinto. Only 9 Texans were killed and 30 wounded.
List of Wounded

At the Battle at San Jacinto eight men had served at the Alamo and left before it fell to Santa Anna. There were at least nine men that had participated in the Goliad battles, four of which who had escaped the massacre itself.

The Republic of Texas contained 384,958 square miles and the newly created United States in 1790 contained 891,364 square miles. However, because of the annexation of Texas, the Mexican War was fought and the United States received an additional 530,706 square miles. Thus Texas contributed 915,764 square miles to the nation, more land than the original 13 colonies.

As in all other battles of the war, the Texas force was composed of men from various sections of the United States as well as Texas. They were volunteers--average civilians in ordinary life but men willing to don the uniform and shoulder arms when their homes and their independence were threatened.
These men, coming from all parts of the country, were united under one flag--the Lone Star.
Isham and John Belcher are listed in the rosters of this battle in Texas.

A monument to this battle is located at:

Another little known important battle in Texas was the Battle of Bexar.

Lists are composites from Baker's Texas Scrapbook, Kemp and Kilman's The Battle of San Jacinto, Dixon and Kemp's The Heroes of San Jacinto, John Henry Brown's History of Texas and additions from various sources including family histories. Spellings are corrected where information is available, but otherwise spellings are from the source. Some individuals may be duplicated due to spelling and given name variation.
The list is by no means complete since each source has omissions and new data continuously has come to light over the years.
Individuals of similar name who were listed as deserters, discharged or still on active duty from rosters of the 3rd, 4th or 6th US Infantry prior to or during the battle and are also on archival land bounty lists and/or later verified to have served in Republic of Texas units are noted in red below the name (SourceWalraven's The Magnificent Barbarians)

The Battle of San Jacinto
April 20, 21 1836
At the Battle of San Jacinto, the Texas army under General Sam Houstan defeated the Mexican army under Santa Anna. This battle ended the war, and Texas earned its independence from Mexico.
Inscribed on the exterior base of the San Jacinto Monument is: Measured by its results, San Jacinto was one of the decisive battles of the world. The freedom of Texas from Mexico won here led to annexation and to the Mexican War, resulting in the acquisition by the United States of the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Utah and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Almost one-third of the present area of the American nation, nearly a million square miles of territory, changed sovereignty.”
