San Jacinto Symposium

Join Us for the 2019 San Jacinto Symposium Register »

Saturday, April 6 – 8:30 am to 5pm

NOTICE: The Battleground Tour has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstance.  For more information, please see this notification letter from Dr. Frank de la Teja.

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”, and it is sponsored by the Strake Foundation, San Jacinto Descendants, and the University of Houston (Downtown).

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.
