Happy San Jacinto Day, Texas!

Happy San Jacinto Day, Texas! Today marks the 181st anniversary of the final battle for Texas independence that took place in modern day Harris County between the forces of General Sam Houston and General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana. The victory left a lasting impression locally and even inspires the centerpiece of the seal of the Harris County Attorney's Office. For more on the battle and how it influenced the design of the Law Library's parent organization's seal, see our Ex Libris Juris post commemorating the 180th San Jacinto Day.
