Fannin Battleground State Historic Site

Museum Exhibit or ProgramFannin Battleground memorializes the brave soldiers who fought the Battle of Coleto Creek on this site in 1836 during the Texas War for Independence. After Col. James W. Fannin surrendered to Mexican forces, Gen. Santa Anna ordered him and his men executed in nearby Goliad, against the wishes of other Mexican commanders. The surrender, and unanticipated execution, inflamed the Texas cause. Visitors here walk the landscaped grounds, taking a moment to remember the men who helped forge the destiny of Texas.
