Santa Anna arrives in Harrisburg.
On a rainy, muddy night, Santa Anna struggles into Harrisburg just after midnight trying to catch the Texas Government. He misses them by just a few hours. Harrisburg is deserted except for three printers. President David Burnet and the cabinet had ridden toward New Washington. Santa Anna sends Col. Almonte and the cavalry after them. The local word is that Houston is marching toward Nacogdoches.
