The annual Battle of San Jacinto Symposium is the preeminent conference on the Texas Revolution era. The objective is to promote public awareness and scholarship on the Mexican national 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.
Co-sponsored by the San Jacinto Battleground Association (also known as the San Jacinto Battleground Conservancy), the Symposium was started in 2001 by the SJBC. Management of the symposium has now passed into the hands of the Texas State Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the preservation of Texas history.
