    Description

    News of the Battle of San Jacinto, The Daily National Intelligencer, Saturday, May 28, 1836, Washington, D.C. 4pp., 18" x 20.5". Great content. The usual central folds and very light chipping at the edges; else, near fine.

    Filled with almost 40 column inches of news from Texas, including the announcement of General Sam Houston's victory over the Mexican Army under Santa Anna at San Jacinto. There are several accounts of the battle and the capture of the Mexican Colonel Almonte and Generals Cos and Santa Anna. The accounts also describe the capture and execution of Texas Colonel James Fannin and his men at Goliad. The Daily National Intelligencer quotes the Mobile Mercantile Advertiser in which they give an account by Santa Anna about the fate of Fannin and his command, "...[Santa Anna] had been induced to violate those terms [of surrender], for two reasons: first, because the day after the surrender of Col. Ward and those under his command, the number of prisoners became so great in consequence that he had not provisions sufficient for them and his own army; and secondly, he had not men enough to keep them securely. Consequently, Col. Ward and almost all his soldiers were shot with Col. Fanning [sic]."
