On April 22, the day after the Battle of San Jacinto, Captain James Tarleton wrote a letter to his brothers describing the battlefield as “the most beautiful prairie, handsomely variegated with small groves of timber.” However, a lot has changed over the last 188 years. The San Jacinto visitors see today looks very different than the one where General Houston and General Santa Anna fought.
