Thank you, Texas!




Sam Houston

Sam Houston
On April 21, 1836 prior to leading his soldiers into the Battle of San Jacinto against Santa Anna, Sam Houston spoke to the troops:


"We view ourselves on the eve of battle. We are nerved for the contest, and must conquer or perish.

It is vain to look for present aid: none is at hand. We must now act or abandon all hope!

Rally to the standard, and be no longer the scoff of mercenary tongues!

Be men, be free men, that your children may bless their father's name."




Quotations from Sam Houston:

"Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may."


Sam Houston on The Civil War

"To secede from the Union and set up another government would cause war. If you go to war with the United States, you will never conquer her, as she has the money and the men. If she does not whip you by guns, powder, and steel, she will starve you to death. It will take the flower of the country-the young men."

"In the name of the constitution of Texas, which has been trampled upon, I refuse to take this oath. I love Texas too well to bring civil strife and bloodshed upon her."

"I declare that civil war is inevitable and is near at hand. When it comes the descendants of the heros of Lexington and Bunker Hill will be found equal in patriotism, courage and heroic endurance with the descendants of the heroes of Cowpens and Yorktown. For this reason I predict the civil war which is now at hand will be stubborn and of long duration."
Sam Houston

"Texas will again lift it's head and stand among the nations. it ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages."
