Preserving the San Jacinto Battleground

August 9 to November 12, 2023


THE DAUGHTERS OF THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS (DRT) and the Texas Veteran Association (TVA) played instrumental roles in preserving the San Jacinto Battlefield. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of these organizations, the site was safeguarded and protected.

The San Jacinto Museum's Lobby Exhibit showcases the stories, struggles, and triumphs of both organizations. On display are artifacts and documents once owned by either the DRT or TVA. This exhibition offers visitors a profound understanding of the legacy left by these groups and the impact they had on the development of this historic site.
