Fields of Honor: A Luminous Tribute at San Jacinto

Illuminary at the San Jacinto Monument


FIELDS OF HONOR: A LUMINOUS TRIBUTE at San Jacinto will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2023, to commemorate the sacrifice of the over 21,500 Texans who have given their lives in armed conflict. Volunteer groups are being sought to participate by placing and picking up 21,500 candles on the San Jacinto Battlefield to visually depict what President Abraham Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion.”

The San Jacinto Battlefield represents both liberty and the price required to maintain it. This special event will serve to educate current and future generations about the sacrifices made by our ancestors for our benefit.
