San Jacinto Symposium

Join Us for the San Jacinto Symposium Register »

The annual, one-day, Battle of San Jacinto Symposium is the preeminent conference on the Texas Revolutionary era. It is a forum for promoting public awareness and scholarship about the Mexican colonial era in Texas (1821-1835), the Texas Revolution (1835-1836), the Battle of San Jacinto (1836), and the Republic of Texas (1836-1845). These pivotal years, mark the transition from Spanish and Mexican sovereignty to independent Texas and annexation to the United States.

The theme of the 2019 Symposium is “Women and the Texas Revolution.”

Co-sponsored by the San Jacinto Battleground Conservancy (SJBC), the Symposium was started in 2001 by the SJBC and has now passed into the hands of the Texas State Historical Association.
