San Felipe, Texas, 1836.

Houston and the last Texas army arrive in San Felipe today. Settled by Stephen F. Austin, the town is the center of the 'Old 300" colonists and important to the Anglo settlers. It's on the West side of the Brazos, the side the Mexican Army will be on.

Rumors begin to circulate that Fannin and his men have been executed by the Mexican Army at Goliad. The Texian troops surrendered under the belief that they were to have been paroled after a few weeks.
