Word of the Goliad massacre reaches the Texican Army.

Fannin's men marched out and shot on Palm Sunday, their bodies left in the killing fields. Word reaches Houston's army at San Felipe. Only 28 survivors of the 347. Fannin shot. Dr. Sutherland and Duval presumed dead.

Houston's men are near mutiny at the constant retreat from river to river. The settlers are committing to the fight. The rain continues and the while Santa Anna considers the war over and this just a mopping up action, the Texans are grimly preparing to fight. It's a bitter Monday in San Felipe.

The ante is being raised in the war for Texas.
